What is a Community Health Center?

A Community Health Center (CHC) is a non-profit health organization that provides care to community members. Heritage Health welcomes all members of our community — whether they have Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance or are uninsured. We treat all age groups from pediatrics to adults and geriatrics. CHCs are unique in that they are led by a Board of Directors, a majority of which have to be clients/patients. CHCs are designed to provide increased access to health care services for people across the United States and are also known as a Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs).
