what people say

Thank you so much Rebecca for your long commitment to the growth and success of Centerpoint Health! Your expertise and deft facilitation were instrumental in helping the Board and Senior Leadership Team craft a strategic plan for the next 3 years. Your efforts on our behalf have sculped CPH for the better!

Catherine Engle, CEO, Centerpoint Health

I’ve worked with Rebecca Johnson since 2009 when she partnered with us to successfully transition from a Rural Health Clinic to FQHC Look-alike in 2013 to fully funded FQHC in 2015. We are a small rural clinic in partnership with a public hospital district. We rely on Rebecca for all of our grant writing, strategic planning, grant management support, scope changes, and board training. Rebecca and her team have assisted with multiple mock OSVs. Cedric is a wonderful support for our QI and Risk Management programs. I wholeheartedly recommend Health Center Solutions for all your health center technical assistance needs – we wouldn’t be where we are today without Rebecca’s support.

Dana Fox, CEO, Mattawa Community Medical Clinic

I highly recommend Health Center Solutions for any clinic interested in becoming an FQHC or FQHC Look-alike. Rebecca led the work – coming on-site to do a readiness assessment and develop a workplan, met with staff and our board, provided technical assistance, and completed the application. Cedric worked with our clinical leadership to update our QI Plan and policies and procedures. Their team also conducted a mock site visit which prepared for the HRSA visit. We were designated as a Look-alike in November 2023. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them.

Sultan Shakir, President and Executive Officer, Mazzoni Center, PA

Rebecca and her team fully understand the FQHC world and how to assist in organizing and writing grants to further our mission.  She has been instrumental in preparing and finalizing the Service Area Competition (SAC) Grant, and most recently with her expertise, we were able to be the recipients of a $3M RCORP MAT Expansion Grant for rural eastern KY.  Her team has also assisted our organization with MOCK Site Visit preparation which has resulted in very favorable Operational Site Visits (OSV).  Rebecca has been a tremendous asset to have working with our organization.

Tina Bryant, Chief Executive Officer, Sterling Health Care, KY

Rebecca turned a newly-funded health center look-alike and Ryan White grantee into a model of health services delivery. She was also instrumental in holding a disintegrating staff together as a productive health services delivery team. She is perceptive and sensitive to the needs, wants, and differences of applicants and communities and is able to tailor her questions and answers to focus on the most productive and inclusive alternative for resolving conflicts. Her analytical abilities and willingness to take on tough, labor-intensive jobs are outstanding. She is an energetic self-starter, willing to take on complicated jobs, a team player and ethical. I know her to be highly professional, analytically skilled, and thoroughly informed about both substantive program issues and current program policy. She is willing to ask the hard questions and able to assess the quality of the answers in the broad context of overall grantee performance.

Beryl Cochran, Project Officer, Bureau of Primary Health Care

I consider Rebecca Johnson to be an exceptional grant writer and highly knowledgeable of the mission of the FQHC’s and the environment in which they function. We have used Rebecca exclusively as our grant writer because of the success we’ve had in being awarded competitive grant funding in five out of six grant applications she’s prepared for us. Her ability to articulate our needs, apply demographic and clinical data to support the needs, and do it in the “language” that HRSA is looking for, is exceptional. She has an excellent understanding of the inner workings of HRSA and I found her to be a wiz at navigating the EHB [Electronic Handbook].

Al Cordova, CEO, WA State Association of Community & Migrant Health Centers and former CEO Tri Cities Health Center

Health Center Solutions is a wizard with the Electronic Handbook (EHB). They have been fully engaged for Federal 330 submissions, Budget Period Renewals, and this year (2014) we asked them to write our successful grant request for the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) through the John A. Hartford Foundation. HCS has a long history with community health centers and has supported PCHS through their ability and experience in writing grants that have been successfully funded as well as their knowledge of the Federally Qualified Health Center mission and organizational structure.

Barbara Malich, CEO, Peninsula Community Health Services

Rebecca came highly recommended and for good reason. Our timeline on the grant applications was rather short and the grants were very involved. Rebecca spent hours consulting, researching and formatting the grant applications. She was consistently on time and on task. She was knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Her work ethic was stellar. Her communication was consistent and she never failed to meet my every need. I received the largest of the two grants and open the program on January 1, 2014. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca and will certainly use her services again if the opportunity arises.

Corky Hundahl, Owner and Executive Director , Phoenix Recovery Services, LLC

When one of our members needs quick, effective assistance with a HRSA grant application, I refer them immediately to Rebecca Johnson. She manages our cooperative agreement and does a great job for our CHCs too.

Lynn Gerlach,  former Development and Communication Manager, Northwest Regional Primary Care Association

Health Center Solutions was an excellent choice for facilitating the strategic planning retreat for Residence XII, a non-profit chemical dependency treatment provider for women and their families located in Kirkland, WA.  Rebecca held preliminary meetings with the board president, the CEO, and key board members to gain a full understanding of our mission and desired outcome of the meeting.  Her ability to enroll and guide the board and agency management team through the process was critical in making the best use of our time and remaining on point.  Her level of experience, organization, warmth, and knowledge greatly contribute to our having had a very successful retreat.
