🎉 Exciting news! On May 1, 2024, Lyon-Martin Community Health Services achieved a groundbreaking milestone: official designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center Look Alike by the US Bureau of Primary Healthcare (BPHC) & the Human Resources & Services Administration (HRSA).🏥🩺🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

This highly sought-after status gives Lyon-Martin recognition in the eyes of the state and federal government, enhanced Medi-Cal reimbursement rates, and future funding opportunities, while also strengthening the clinic’s commitment to serving our most marginalized communities. 

Attaining independent FQHC status has been a decades-long aspiration for Lyon-Martin, symbolizing true financial sustainability and autonomy. 

Additionally, we are proud to announce that Lyon-Martin is now the first transgender-led FQHC, marking a significant milestone for inclusivity and representation in healthcare leadership. Previously, we operated under federal recognition as a sub-grantee of the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium’s Healthcare for the Homeless grant and as part of HealthRIGHT360, also an FQHC LAL, but never as our own entity. JM Jaffe, CEO, Makisha Maier, COO, Dr Nick Gorton, Medical Director, and our Board of Directors spearheaded this monumental endeavor, ensuring our clinic’s endurance for generations to come. Thanks to the incredible support of our community, dedicated team, and @hrsagov we’re continuing to expand access to vital healthcare services. 🥳
