Description of Organization:
Greater Baden Medical Services is a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides primary care to low-income and/or uninsured residents of Southern Maryland. In 2007, patients served in our seven centers were 65% African-American, 19% Hispanic, and 16% White. The project was designed to improve Greater Baden’s capacity to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate care that will increase access and improve health outcomes of patients who are obese, living with diabetes and/or have cardiovascular disease.

Description of project:
This project will be guided by four primary interventions: 1) improve internal operations to include a comprehensive Hispanic cultural component; 2) improve medical provider and staff’s level of cultural competence; 3) incorporate culturally and linguistically appropriate standards (CLAS) as an ongoing operational strategy; and 4) increase access to care through promoting language interpretation competencies in our staff, health education and building and sustaining community based linkages.
