2024 FACHC Annual Conference

July 28 – July 31, 2024

Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa
3030 Holiday Drive Ft., Lauderdale, FL 33316

Since 1981, the Florida Association of Community Health Centers, Inc. (FACHC) has been the leading state advocate for community-based healthcare programs. Focusing on Florida’s Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), the Association plays a vital role in educating federal, state, and local policymakers about healthcare issues and the health centers’ role. The primary mission of FACHC is to improve access to quality health services by bringing together agencies, legislators, and key persons able to affect health care services. Our staff works with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Bureau of Primary Health Care, the Region IV HHS Public Health Service in Atlanta, the National Association of Community Health Centers, Inc., and the Southeast Health Care Consortium, Inc. which includes key representatives from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

FACHC’s strong presence in Tallahassee, where our corporate headquarters are located, provides fast access to the Legislature, the Governor’s Office, the Department of Health, and the Agency for Health Care Administration for issues affecting health centers and their patients. FACHC also contracts with a Governmental Consultant to enhance its state advocacy efforts in the Legislature.

The 2024 FACHC Annual Conference promises a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network at the oceanfront resort that blurs the line between work and play. With FACHC, you’re sure to have some fun while building meaningful client relationships. This year’s theme is “Lights, Camera, Innovation.” Here’s your chance to show our Members how your organization can help Florida’s Community Health Centers prepare for their CLOSE UP!
