    Community health centers are local clinics that provide care to people who live in medically underserved areas. Their services are tailored to fit the unique needs of the communities they serve, and their mission is simple: provide high-quality, affordable, and comprehensive medical services to everyone — regardless of who they are, where they come from, or their ability to pay. That’s important, because many health center patients live on low incomes or face significant barriers to accessing care.

    Health centers provide cost-effective primary and preventive care, including dental, behavioral health services, substance use disorder treatment, vision, and pharmacy, that helps people get and stay healthy. They also connect their patients to social services, such as food or housing assistance, and enabling services that help them access care, such as transportation or translation. Those factors, combined with the ability to address multiple health needs under one roof, are why health centers are leaders in treating chronic diseases, reducing health disparities, and keeping people out of the emergency department.
