What is a Community Health Center?

Utah’s Health Centers

When you think about a community health center, what do you see? Is it a crowded place where you feel like just a number? Or is it a place that only accepts you if have a certain kind of health insurance? Well, it’s not. Community Health Centers are thriving, patient-centered facilities that practice wellness, collaboration, and excellence.

Fundamentals of the Health Center Program

For more than 45 years, HRSA-supported health centers have provided comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations.  Health centers are community-based and patient-directed organizations that serve populations with limited access to health care.
