Kintegra Gold Status Advocacy Center of Excellence (ACE)

Kintegra is proud of its GOLD status designation as an Advocacy Center of Excellence (ACE).

The National Association of Community Health Centers defines an Advocacy Center of Excellence (ACE) as a Health Center or Primary Care Association that creates a culture of advocacy to ensure that policy makers at all levels of government commit to investing in affordable, equitable, and innovative care that health centers provide.

ACE levels recognize consistent engagement, success, and demonstrated ongoing commitment to making advocacy an organizational priority. ACEs are actively engaged and involved with NACHC and federal policy issues, as well as their state Primary Care Association and key state and local-level policy issues impacting health centers and their patients. There are three levels of ACEs – Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with each designation valid for two years.  Kintegra’s  current GOLD status is valid through December 2023.
