Our History

Community Healthcare Center is a product of a 1992 organized community effort to develop a healthcare facility for the medically underserved: low income, uninsured and under-insured community residents. The Center began providing medical care in 1994 to Wichita County and counties in north Texas. Today, over 30,000 insured and uninsured patients annually call Community Healthcare Center their healthcare home.

From its modest beginning in a 3,800 square foot modular building with one primary care physician and eight employees, the Center has grown to 44,000+ square feet with clinicians spanning the fields of family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, women’s health, behavioral health and family dentistry. Medical and dental care is supported by lab, x-ray, pharmacy, education, prescription assistance, Medicaid eligibility and more.

In 2009, Community Healthcare Center saw the edition of a second site, a temporary clinic opened in the Wichita Falls Housing Authority. The permanent site, Community Healthcare Center – Juarez Medical Clinic, was erected in 2010 and serves Housing Authority and surrounding neighborhood residents. In 2014, a new 13,000+ square foot site – Phyllis Hiraki Dental Clinic was opened next door to the main clinic. This state-of-the-art facility dramatically enhanced the Center’s capacity to service the oral health needs of area residents.

In 2017, Community Healthcare Center worked with a community task force to open a federally qualified health center clinical site in McKinney, Texas – Family Health Center on Virginia. The health center in McKinney houses primary and preventive services for medical, dental and behavioral health counseling. Then, in 2019, our services and clinics expanded in McKinney with the addition of the Women’s Health Center of McKinney, which added obstetrics and gynecology specialties to the health center.

In March of 2018, Pediatric Associates merged with Community Healthcare Center. Since the beginning, Pediatric Associates mission was to serve those patients that have no insurance or depend on Medicaid, and that mission-focus made it evident that the merger was the best for both clinics since Community Healthcare Center’s mission is to serve the underserved.

 

"It was the most pleasant and positive experience I have had in a medical clinic in decades."

Community Healthcare Center (CHC), like other healthcare organizations, has experienced a drastic increase in COVID-19 symptomatic visits from its existing patients and the local community. Due to the related increase in patient volume and decrease in staffing and other resources, CHC has made temporary changes in its patient acceptance policies.

Specifically, CHC will continue to provide the same high quality and quantity of services to our existing patients; however, we will only be accepting new patients within the following vulnerable populations:

• Ages 20 and under,
• Ages 65 and older, or
• Pregnant women.

Persons within the ages of 21 through 64 who are not pregnant and are not already an established CHC patient will need to seek primary care services elsewhere. We will look forward to being able to begin accepting new patients from all age groups and both maternity statuses as soon as possible.

Again, all current patients are welcomed to continue receiving whatever primary care services we offer from us whenever they need it, and regardless of their COVID-19 vaccine status. Any new patients that we can accept (ages 20 and under, 65 and older, or that are pregnant), will continue to be welcomed too, also regardless of their COVID-19 vaccine status.

COVID-19 vaccines are available for all qualified individuals, patient or not, ages 12 and older. Individuals wanting to be vaccinated may schedule their COVID-19 vaccination by calling (940) 766-6306. However, simply receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from CHC does not establish you as a CHC patient.
