Kentucky Primary Care Association (KPCA) Chief Executive Officer, David Bolt, issued the following statement in response to the announcement: 

“Community Health Centers provide essential, high quality, state of the art healthcare to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. They are located in more than 90 Kentucky counties, including nearly all of the 42 counties that do not have a local hospital. By focusing on the uninsured, the underinsured, homeless, seasonal workers, minority populations, and others who may have barriers to healthcare access, Community Health Centers now treat more than 550,000 Kentucky residents. Their work improves health outcomes and makes our communities healthier for everyone.”
