New Brochure! America’s Health Centers

Born in the 1960s out of America’s struggle for equality, social and economic justice, America’s Health Centers have always worked to improve the health and well-being of underserved people, in rural and urban areas and on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.  One of every 11 Americans depends on a health center as a trusted and regular source for affordable health care – 91 percent of patients are low-income, and two-thirds are members of racial or ethnic minorities. Governed by local, patient-majority boards, health centers are transparent and accountable stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Health centers are innovators, healers and problem-solvers who reach beyond the walls of the conventional health care delivery system to not only prevent illness but to address the environmental causes of it in peoples’ lives – the social determinants of health.  Learn more about the mission and accomplishments of health centers and download our new brochure.
