City Council Approves Launch of Federal Investigation of KCHC

The Kenosha City Council voted Monday to formally request a federal investigation of the Kenosha Community Health Center. The move is in response to pressure aldermen have been placing on health center officials about their operations. The city will request that the Health Resources and Services Administration — which oversees federally funded health centers — open an investigation into the organization’s staffing and their adherence to the Public Health Service Act.  The resolution — passed on a 13-1 vote — calls for the federal agency to review the center’s board of directors, Executive Director Mary Coffey and the center’s human resources director. The request would now be forwarded to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson.
