Premier Community HealthCare Group will host patient and community partner appreciation open house events Monday through Friday to celebrate National Health Center Week. The schedule is as follows, with events including free health information and refreshments:
Monday 4 to 6 p.m. at the Trinity/New Port Richey Family clinic; 2114 Seven Springs Blvd.

This year's theme, "Increasing Access to Affordable, Cost Effective, High Quality Care," is aimed at fulfilling the goal of providing a health care home to 30 million patients by 2015 as part of the Affordable Care Act.
"Health center week is particularly important this year due to the roll out of the Affordable Care Act," said Kim Schuknecht, Premier CEO. "Health centers around Florida and the nation are using this opportunity to let their communities know about new health coverage options and what residents might be eligible for."
Enrollment for the Affordable Care Act exchanges for those seeking private insurance begins in October.
