Who We Are
Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services’ mission is to provide health care and basic human need services to Goochland residents in need of assistance.
Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services believes that health is more than the absence of disease. As a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization located in Goochland County, Virginia, we strive to provide holistic health care through an array of services. Comprehensive programs stabilize and improve the lives of impoverished individuals and families. We promote health through our medical, dental, mental health, food, clothing, financial assistance, critical home repair, housing (critical repairs and emergency housing), medical transportation, and education. Each client undergoes a basic human needs assessment at registration. When needed, we provide case management services for individuals with multiple presenting problems.
The Free Clinic provides a medical home for Goochland’s uninsured low-income adults. Services include:
GFCFS is committed to improving the quality of our care delivery through compliance with NCQA’s Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) standards. The PCMH model emphasizing access, continuity, safety, quality, coordination, and accountability is consistent with our approach to care delivery. As we have implemented organizational and process changes towards this goal, the care we provide increasingly aligns with the PCMH standards. Our goal is to submit application for NCQA PCMH recognition Level 1 in early 2015.

Patient Centered Medical Home Collaborative members regularly collect data on a set of quality measures. Clinics not only review their performance compared to other clinics in the PCMH Collaborative and compare their quality performance to external standards. This practice is commonly called “benchmarking.” For this project, the best available benchmarks are for Medicaid health plans nationally.
