A Quarterly Resource Bulletin from Capital Link | Winter 2019/2020
Message from the CEO
Capital Link staff enjoyed seeing many of you at the numerous events we’ve participated in this fall. It’s inspiring to learn more about the incredible work health centers are doing to create healthy communities, from implementing team-based care to integrating services.
As the new year approaches, planning is often top of mind for health centers. For those with capital project planning on their list, the article Are You Ready? Essential Preparation Activities to Move Your Capital Project Ahead in the Resources section contains key preparation activities and related resources to start the year off right. In addition, have you ever noticed that periods around elections often offer opportunities to health centers related to capital development? It’s anyone’s guess whether an infrastructure bill or other funding opportunity will eventually emerge—but it never hurts to have a “shovel ready” project in the works!
It’s been a busy quarter for Capital Link as we prepare to launch the third year of our two Learning Collaboratives: Capital Projects: Planning, Financing, Completing and Capital Expansion for Health and Housing Partnerships and Capital Projects: Planning, Financing and Completing. Learn more about how your health center can participate in the New and Noteworthy section of this issue.
As always, Capital Ink also offers a federal update, health center highlights, and a complete list of our upcoming trainings and webinars. We hope you find it helpful.
Allison Coleman, CEO
