Ken
t Tarro, CEO/Public Health Administrator, leads a team of 160 staff and manages an annual budget of more than $9,500,000. The Maple Street Clinic currently serves more than 7,700 residents annually, providing more than 40,000 visits annually. The target population for the Health Center Sites include uninsured and underinsured citizens, Medicaid/Medicare insured, children 3 to 19 years old, and Public Housing residents, which together comprise 55% of Macoupin County residents. Macoupin County is MUA/MUP designated, a primary care and mental health shortage area, and a low-income dental shortage area. Major healthcare needs include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, oral and behavioral health access and substance use disorder treatment and recovery services. Healthcare barriers include the cost of care for low-income residents and lack of transportation. Through continued CHC/PHPC funding, MCPHD will increase by over 8% the number of residents served in rural Macoupin County and surrounding areas. Our plans include increasing outreach visits for medical and behavioral care liaising with public health services and community organizations to reduce barriers to care for our patients The SAC grant will enable MCPHD to employ 3.0 FTE Family Nurse Practitioners, 1.0 FTE Physician Assistants, 3.0 FTE Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, 4.0 FTE LCSW’s, 3.0 LCPC’s, 7.0 FTE dentists, 4.2 FTE Dental Hygienists and 13.0 FTE Expanded Function Dental Assistants.
