Community Health Centers proudly serve over 22 million people in more than 9,000 rural and urban communities across America. Our unique model of care has provided accessible, quality health care to underserved communities--regardless of ability to pay--for nearly 50 years, and now it is playing a critical role in transforming the health care delivery system in America by lowering health care costs, reducing chronic disease and health disparities.
There are a number of information tools and resources to help you learn more about health centers. First, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter. In addition you can sign-up for the NACHC RSS feed to receive the latest alerts and news releases. You can also visit the NACHC blogs, and learn the latest information about our work, including:
