Results of Limited Scope Review at Oakhurst Medical Centers, Inc.
We reviewed the financial condition of Oakhurst Medical Centers, Inc. (Oakhurst), as part of a nationwide series of reviews of Community Health Centers that have received funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).
Oakhurst's financial viability improved over the time of our audit period. It has the ability to manage and account for Federal funds and to operate a health center in accordance with Federal regulations. However, we identified a weakness in Oakhurst's controls over its contracting process.
In determining whether Oakhurst is appropriately managing and accounting for the Recovery Act grant funding, we recommended that HRSA consider the information presented in this report in assessing Oakhurst's ability to operate a Community Health Center in accordance with Federal regulations. In written comments on our draft report, Oakhurst did not comment on our finding regarding its improved financial viability and agreed with our finding regarding insufficient controls over its contracting process.
