Question: What do you do with a hard working staff at one of the busiest federally qualified health centers in the country? Answer: Give your staff an award. That’s what Vince Keane, CEO of Unity Health Care in Washington, D.C. did. Unity Health Care provides healthcare to uninsured, underinsured, and homeless men, women and children in the Nation’s Capitol. Founded in 1985, Unity is the fourth largest community health center network in the country, offering a full range of health services regardless of patients’ ability to pay. Unity operates 30 neighborhood facilities, including 11 community-based health centers, 10 medical sites in homeless shelters, and 3 specialized health centers. Unity’s Mobile outreach vans travel throughout the city, providing care to homeless persons and “hard to reach” drug abusers.
