What is a Community Health Center? And Why Are These Centers So Fundamental to Good Healthcare?

YourTown Health is a network of eight non-profit Community Health Centers located in communities that would otherwise have limited access to affordable, quality healthcare, especially if you’re uninsured or underinsured.

If you’re asking yourself, “What is a Community Health Center?”, you’re in the right place. Continue reading to learn what they are, why they are so fundamental to our healthcare system, and how we can all celebrate and support these essential organizations.

What are Community Health Centers?

Community Health Centers are community-based and patient-focused organizations that deliver high-quality and compassionate primary healthcare services to the communities they serve. They provide treatment and healthcare education services to patients while ensuring that no patient is turned away from receiving needed care. In addition to primary care, Community Health Centers often provide a wide range of services that support healthier communities.

As a network of Community Health Centers ourselves, YourTown Health’s mission is to provide comprehensive preventative, curative, and life-enhancing services in a non-judgmental and compassionate environment. We offer pediatric and adolescent care, family practice and internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, dentistry, and pharmacy services. Our Community Health Centers also provide immunizations, diagnostic testing and laboratory services, school and work physicians, and referrals to qualified specialists.

Why Are These Centers Fundamental to Good Healthcare?

Community Health Centers provide access to essential healthcare services to the people of their communities, care that might otherwise be unavailable for many. They help their patients live healthier lives and support the overall health of their communities.

As the National Association of Community Health Center puts it, “In moments of pain and loss, [Community Health Centers] offer support and love. In moments of triumph, they offer hope and vision for the future.”
