Annual Report Summary- 2020

For the fiscal year Oct. 1, 2019 – September 30, 2020, the IRCHD budgeted $12,974,110 for program funding, $1,145,999 for administrative expenses and $4,177,989 in reserves. We began an investing strategy, gaining additional interest, to further your tax dollars.  Although the IRCHD provided almost $350,000 in COVID related needs, we ended the year under budget.  This enabled us to carry forward cash reserves and hold the millage rate steady, so that we are prepared to continue providing additional healthcare support.

Highlights of 2020

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic making for an unusual year, the District was able to provide support throughout the community. Highlights include:

  • Over $350,000 in PPE and supplies to agencies including the VNA, Childcare Resources, GYAC, WHFC, & Early Learning Coalition, to combat COVDID-19,
  • Celebrated the one-year anniversary of the successful RFP process to reinstate a full services medical clinic at the Gifford Health Center, now operated by Treasure Coast Community Health
  • Supported the IRC Healthy Start Coalition Doula Program with $18,600 in funding to provide support to an additional 50 expectant mothers
  • Contributed $43,000 in funds to support opening a medical clinic in the new United Against Poverty Center.

Special Projects

The IRCHD helped fund and support a Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR), which was an initiative of the Healthy Start Coalition of IRC, the Florida Department of Health and the Health Council of South East Florida.   Reviewing cases back to 2014, a FIMR brings together key members of the community to examine information from individual cases of fetal and infant death to identify the factors that contributed to those deaths, determine if those factors represent system problems that require change, and enhance recommendations for change.
