Community Health Leader Elected to Help Steer National Association (Photo) - 08/05/20

BETHESDA, MD – Pam McManus, Peak Vista Community Health Centers, Colorado Springs, CO, has been appointed/elected as Regional Board Member of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC).  The NACHC Board consists of elected officers and members from 10 chartered regions with two representatives from each who help shape policies to strengthen and sustain the national network of Community Health Centers. Community Health centers serve nearly 30 million people nationwide in 14,000 rural and urban medically underserved communities.  Ms. McManus will serve Region VIII, comprised of CO, MT, ND, SD, UT and WY effective October 1, 2020 for a two-year term.

Pam McManus is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Peak Vista Community Health Centers, overseeing 28 sites serving nearly 94,000 patients per year. Ms. McManus has worked at Peak Vista for over 28 years and has been President and CEO for the past 8 years.  Ms. McManus holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Fort Lewis College, an MBA with an emphasis in Human Resources from University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and is a Certified Public Accountant.  Ms. McManus has been an active advocate for CHCs, urging members of congress to support health center funding initiatives. Leading the “Access is the Answer” initiative at Peak Vista, she received national recognition for her efforts by NACHC in both 2014 and 2015. Pam has been recognized by the Leadership Pikes Peak “Modeling the Way” Community Leadership Award, the “Women of Influence” award from the Colorado Springs Business Journal, the “Jessie Trice Excellence in Leadership Award” from the National Association of Community Health Centers, the Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States “Outstanding Legislative Leadership” award, the Southern Colorado AIDS Project “Red Ribbon Hero” award and the Delta Sigma Theta “Hat’s off” honor.

“PVCHC and the communities we serve are privileged to have Ms. McManus lead us. She represents a diverse region of Colorado and the profound way in which a Federally Qualified Health Center can impact the lives, health and flourishing of a population. We are thrilled to have her expertise and skills to represent our region, bridging between the national and local levels. She will continue to advance best practice while spearheading innovation to meet emerging needs. We are proud of Pam, celebrate the leadership she exemplifies in our community and look forward to future success fulfilling our mission in Colorado's Pikes Peak and East Central regions.” Robin Johnson, M.D., Peak Vista Community Health Centers Board of Directors Chairperson.

Community Health Centers are essential for a strong public health system. They provide low-cost access to preventive health services and save the U.S. health care system $24 billion a year. The election to the NACHC Board comes as health centers face overwhelming challenges as the first line of defense in the COVID-19 pandemic. In a matter of months, health centers have pivoted toward launching testing sites in medically underserved communities and using telehealth/ telephonic services to safely reach out to patients, a majority of whom are low income, minority, and uninsured or publicly insured. At the same time, health centers are fighting for sustainable funding from Congress to continue their efforts and expand access to preventive care in medically underserved communities, where the populations are most vulnerable to pandemics. A large portion of that funding expires in November unless Congress acts.
