Well, some sites on the internet say $126,000
is average for FQHCs across the country. I can't say for sure how accurate that is, but my gut feeling is to say that that's probably not too far off.
Keep in mind that local FQHC salaries will vary based on reimbursement patterns in the area. Still, I really feel that your wife is probably getting paid quite a bit less than she could working elsewhere in that geographic area.
