Health Center at a
Community Health Center in Florida
The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI is the very first community health center to become a teaching health center in the State of Florida as of July 2014.“Our vision to become an educational institution of excellence is now realized,” said Colonel Brodes H. Hartley Jr., President and CEO at CHI. “CHI will be contributing to the national effort to train primary care clinicians to meet the needs of the many newly insured from the Affordable Care Act. It also brings a higher level of quality to the organization.
Our Graduate Medical Education programs are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Medical Education (ACGME). We partner with the Consortium for Excellence in Medical Education (CEME) through NOVA Southeastern University Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Our residents have rotations with the following affiliated partners: Jackson South Medical Center, Larkin Community Hospital and Palmetto General Hospital as well as other local community partners. Residents’ clinical learning environment includes quality improvement and proactive risk assessment measures.
“This increases CHI’s visibility in the health care community and improves our ability to recruit primary care clinicians over the next decade,” said Dr. St. Anthony Amofah, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Academic Officer at CHI.
