HJAHC is a FTCA Deemed Facility. Under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), once deemed, centers that have followed the guidelines and requirements of the FTCA may not be liable for any settlements or judgments that are made. The Federal government assumes responsibility for these costs. Under these circumstances, deemed health center program grantees may be immune from medical malpractice lawsuits resulting from the performance of medical, surgical, dental, or related functions within the approved scope of project. A patient who alleges acts of medical malpractice by a deemed health center cannot sue the center or the provider directly, but must file the claim against the United States Government.
