One in every fifteen people living in the United States depends on health center services. Health Centers deliver high quality, cost effective, accessible care while serving as critical economic engines helping to power local economies. In addition to their long history as health care homes to millions, Health Centers are also proud to celebrate more than 50 years of service and continue to be ranked among the highest quality and cost effective care providers in the nation. Health Centers provide their services to all people, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status.
Every year during the 2nd week of August, all 1,400 Community Health Centers across the United States come together to celebrate National Health Center Week. The theme for National Health Center Week 2017 (NHCW) is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities.” As local community owned and operated businesses, Health Centers serve over 25 million Americans at more than 9,000 delivery sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. territories.
