DEAR

FRIENDS Dear Friends:

I am pleased to be delivering this annual report to the community after another successful year at CompleteCare Health Network. As we make our way into 2017, a year that will be uncertain for healthcare, I want to highlight the value that health centers like CompleteCare offer and the vital role they play across the country, as well as right here at home. In 2016 CompleteCare once again made a significant impact on the health of our community by providing affordable, accessible, high-quality healthcare to 59,391 patients for a total of 247,678 patient visits. Part of our growth was due to our mission of creating additional access for new patients by opening our state-of-theart health campus in Vineland, opening a new and expanded Medical Professionals office in Glassboro, and extending our hours in some locations to create more evening and weekend appointment availability. In addition to providing quality patient care, our expansive programs and services also continued to make a mark in our service area, committing to patients for more than just their medical care. Many will

be outlined throughout our annual report, but a few highlights include: Introducing Reach Out & Read to our pediatric centers; a program stressing the importance of literacy. Creating asthma management classes for kids to learn how to better control their illness. Continuing our work on the Affordable Care Act, helping to enroll almost 10,000 patients into coverage. Expanding our Smile Smart program to kids needing dental care to 28 local schools. I am extremely thankful to all of our staff for their hand in our successes, especially our volunteer board, hardworking executive and management teams, and each and every employee who truly believes in and works towards the CompleteCare mission each and every day. We are fully aware of the potential challenges the year is going to bring, including pending changes to the Affordable Care Act and possibly the way community health centers are funded. But, no matter what direction healthcare takes in the country we know there will be sick and underserved patients in our communities in need of quality, affordable healthcare and CompleteCare will be there to meet their needs. We look forward to your continued support. Sincerely,

J. Curtis Edwards/President & CEO
