June was a stellar month for Wallace, its patients and the Rockwood community. We couldn’t be more thrilled! The Supreme Court ruling upholding the most critical provisions of the Affordable Care Act means that Wallace’s new status as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is assured. As an FQHC, we will build and expand our primary and preventive services, as well as continue to offer high quality urgent care services. We’ll also begin to provide lab, dental and mental health services--conveniently located, culturally-appropriate and tailored to each patient’s needs.
