Arroyo Fresco
Arroyo Fresco Community Health Center (AF) is a community health center serving western Arizona from 11 clinics and 4 mobile service vans. Community health centers have been established over the past 40 years in underserved areas in all 50 states, and they are nonprofit, community-owned health care organizations that offer patients high-quality primary care and preventive services regardless of their ability to pay. They also provide enabling services, such as transportation, translation, case management, health education, and home visitation, which increase access to care. AF serves three counties – Yuma, Mohave, and La Paz – with diverse populations and needs. The service area of over 23,000 square miles has fewer than 400,000 people – about one-third of the state’s overall population. AF provides ambulatory medical (i.e. obstetric/gynecologic, family medicine, pediatric) and dental services, which are supported by routine laboratory and X-ray services, vision and hearing screening, behavioral health and substance abuse screening, and pharmacy services. AF also ensures that its patients can access all services required across the continuum of care through partnerships or contractual relationships with hospitals, physicians, and agencies throughout the tricounty area and these arrangements are spelled out in the annual plan required by the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). Arroyo Fresco’s mission is to provide residents of Yuma, La Paz, and Mohave counties easy and timely access to high-quality and safe health care services; responsive to their diverse cultural and socioeconomic needs, regardless of their ability to pay. Arroyo Fresco is governed by a voluntary 15-member Board of Directors, which is chaired by the founder and former CEO. The bylaws and federal program regulations require that at least 51% of voting members be recipients of…...

...walls and moats that skirt Intramuros' borders. Once upon a time, Intramuros was Manila - no one could enter but the Spanish, their servants, and mestizos (half-Spanish Filipinos). Outside Manila lived Filipinos and Chinese merchants. The latter were forced to live in a ghetto that was conveniently located within range of Intramuros' cannons, in case the Chinese revolted against Spanish rule. It was a Spanish artillery regiment and office of Guardia Civil Veterana. * GALERIA DE LOS PRESIDENTES List of Presidents: Emilio Aguinaldo, Manuel L. Quezon, Jose P.

Renaissance: Linear Perspective

...[pic] Fig. 5 1508-1512 The Flood Michelangelo Fresco Sistine Chapel, Vatican City Although a true sculpture at heart, Michelangelo (1475- 1564) who is most famous for his sculpture of “David” and his fresco on the Sistine Chapel continues the list of painters who mastered linear perspective. “The Flood” by Michelangelo is a painted biblical scene displayed on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. In this particular scene Michelangelo creates a three- dimensional illusion by the overlapping of people climbing the mountain to get away from the water and rain. In the distant is Noah’s Ark which shows Michelangelo’s splendid uses of space by changing the size of objects in the two-dimensional space (Art and the Bible, 2005). [pic] Fig. 6 1509-1510 School of Athens Raphael Fresco Apostolic Palace, Vatican City Almost at the same time that Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel, another High Renaissance painter, Raphael Sanizo (1483- 1520) was painting his fresco “School of Athens” on the rooms of the Apostolic Palace. In his fresco Raphael paints the greatest of philosophers and mathematicians during the time of ancient Greece gathering in an academy of an unlimited wealth of knowledge. Even though Raphael did not label each philosopher or mathematician, which is a controversy, it is predicted that the two figures in the middle of the fresco is Plato and Aristotle. This location is the fresco’s central......

Arroyo Fresco Case Study

...Discussion of new Strategy The new strategy is aligned with the mission of AF • Reduction of overall cost to serve, indirect patient cost and to increase net income. The question is whether it would be financially viable especially when a large number of patients have to be served ( Arroyo Fresco, 2004-2013). • The new strategy is also addressing workforce gaps in order to provide clinical and technical staff. Would this be viable in the light that employee training costs, as well as staff with technical skills are high? • Thirdly increase prevention care and avoidance of chronic and communicable diseases at the different sites. This will require internal and external resources to address the unmet health care needs in the various service areas and this can create the need for further financial resources. • The fourth objective is to provide uninsured patients with health care needs. When the organization and state collaborate they can provide increase insurance for patients. But the drawback to this system is that it increases financial cost and does not seem financially viable. • The fifth strategy is to increase satisfaction among volunteers, employees, and patients. This will however call for an increase compensation for staff and this may not be financially viable. Analysis of chapter 7 and research completed Patients with % BMI had consistently reduced in all three counties better than the State-Average CHC between 2003-2005 .Percentage of......

Arroyo Fresco Case Study

...Arroyo Fresco Community Health Center Case Study Analysis Abstract Arroyo Fresco (AF) currently provides services through eleven clinics and four mobile service vans across western Arizona. The three counties that are served through AF provide high quality primary care and preventative services to demographic areas with diverse geography, culture, income, and other varying factors (“Arroyo Fresco,” 2006). The facility guides its decision making process for organizational strategies with the combination of FOCUS and SWOT analysis. This allows for a well-rounded check and balance system to manage and prepare for current and future strategies for short term and long term processes. The increase in financial demands, consumer expectations, partnerships and mergers, quality of care given, and health care reform restructuring have placed a lot of expectations on health care facilities (“Creating an ethical culture,” 2011). The organizational strategy proves to be an important structure in order to provide a clear definition on how AF can change over time in order to successfully deliver a strategy and action plan that will benefit the short term and long term projections within the company (“Executive Insight,” 2008). AF has an found areas to improve the job descriptions, relationships, and management processes (Miles, Snow, Meyer, and Coleman, 2013). The organization strives to establish a strategic set of goals that will monitor, advance, and demonstrate health care......

Current Health Care Concerns in Arizona

...Current Healthcare Concerns Started in the 1960s, Community Health Centers have serviced the need for health care for low income and impoverished people in the inner-cities and rural areas throughout the country. Today Arroyo Fresco Community Health Center continues the tradition of community health. However, unlike the 1960s, many issues concerning health care today have affected the quality and economics in the health care market. It seems that there is a plethora of concerns about the delivery of health care that adds to the burden community health centers face. Health Reform (Affordable Care Law), Physician Assisted Suicide, Medical Errors, Universal Health Coverage, Medicaid/Medicare Expansion, just to mention a few. There are some issues that stand out as requiring more attention than others. Health Care Expenditures Health Care Expenditures measure spending for all privately and publicly funded personal health care services and products to include: hospital care, physician services, nursing home care, prescription drugs, clinical and ancillary services, equipment, etc. Expenditures vary by state. Hospital spending is included and reflects the total net revenue (gross charges minus contractual adjustments, bad debts, and charity care). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United States spent more on health care per capita ($8,608), and more on health care as percentage of its GDP (17.9%), than any other nation in 2011. Costs such as insurance......

The Secret Lion

...growing up, without really knowing what is going on. As they start in junior high school, things as they know them, begins to change, and everything turns different. They do not like the change; however change is inevitable for them. To escape school, where “everything was backward-like” (197), the boys seek to the arroyo, the place that never changes. The arroyo illustrates their childhood, their sanctuary, where they can rebel and be children, without parents and teachers take away their freedom by making up rules and new expectations. “It was our river, though, our personal Mississippi, our friend from long back, and it was full of stories” (197). The arroyo is the place they found when they were younger. They know it well, trust it and feel like it is theirs, because they have shared so many memories and stories. Since it was not adults who showed it to them, they could form their own impressions of the place. As the boys grow older the arroyo does not change, but the boys’ view of it does. They feel like it is the arroyo that changes, when in fact it is themselves who change, as they grow older. When you grow older, you lose some of your childhood. The arroyo, which is a big part of their childhood, they lose. The narrator and Sergio try to keep their childhood, and make sure that everything remains as it is. Therefore, they bury the grinding ball, which is a symbol of the narrator and Sergio’s childhood and innocence, to make sure that no one can take it away from......
