What are Community Health Centers?

  • Local, non-profit, community-directed, and federally-funded health care providers.
  • Serving low income and medically underserved communities where care is needed but scarce.
  • Health centers have provided high-quality, affordable primary care and preventive services for over 45 years.
  • Often provide on-site dental, pharmaceutical, and mental health and substance abuse services.
  • Health centers provide one-quarter of all primary care visits for the nation’s low income population.
  • Centers serve over 22 million patients annually at 9,000 locations in every state and territory.
  • Improve access to care for millions of Americans regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
  • Costs of care rank among the lowest, and they reduce the need for more expensive in-patient and specialty care, saving billions of dollars for taxpayers.

For additional information on Community Health Centers, visit The Texas Association of Community Health Centers (TACHC), a private, non-profit membership association that represents safety-net health care providers in the state of Texas (www.tachc.org).
