WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – FoundCare, Inc. received a rare perfect score from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The site visit took place September 6 through September 8, and the results were provided on October 16. FoundCare was described as a “high functioning health center” and FoundCare’s staff was noted for the “hard work they put into getting ready for the site visit.” HRSA conducts site visits at its Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) at least once every three years to assess the FQHC’s compliance and performance status in such areas as need, services, management, finance and governance. Everyone at FoundCare is honored to be recognized in this manner.

Since that time, FoundCare has grown in size and scope, adding a second site in North Palm Beach in 2015. In 2016, FoundCare provided services to a total of 14,807 patients.

Yolette Bonnet, FoundCare’s Chief Executive Officer, reflecting on the perfect score, said “I am honored and humbled. Our unwavering dedication to the community and our patients is what guides us.
