Community Health Centers

Supporting Pennsylvania's health centers in increasing access to quality primary health care for all

Your Primary Care Media Center

Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers serves as the collective voice for Pennsylvania's Federally Qualified Health Centers (FHQCs), FQHC Look-Alikes (FQHCLAs), and non-profit Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).  Our members are unique nonprofit primary care facilities that provide a wide array of services to Pennsylvanians in underserved areas of the state. There are nearly 300 sites in 52 counties serving nearly 900,000 Pennsylvanians.  At these primary care facilities, patients will receive high quality care at a price they can afford with sliding fees based on income and family size.

"Special" - Who at YOUR Health Center Comes to Mind?

Once a year, Pennsylvania's "community of Community Health Centers" takes time to celebrate some of the outstanding individuals and teams who work in health centers across the commonwealth. The PACHC APEX Awards luncheon and ceremony at the Annual Conference & Clinical Summit is an opportunity to recognize and thank some of the individuals who are the "special sauce" in our health centers - those who lift up patients and colleagues, who can always be counted on, who keep learning and growing and who serve as an inspiration to others. Who comes to mind for you?
