Community Health Care, Inc. - "CHC" - was founded in 1975, to offer a medical and dental home for persons who could not access primary health care elsewhere in the community. CHC offers preventive, acute and chronic care, as well as laboratory, x-ray, pharmacy, nutrition, and health education services. Without CHC, many patients would rely on emergency rooms during crisis, or go without care altogether.
In recent years, CHC has made great strides, many of which were made possible with the assistance of generous donors in the Quad Cities area. The number of patients that CHC serves each year has grown to over 24,000 as a result of accomplishments such as these:
In thirty years of service, CHC has provided a primary care safety net for those in our community who are most vulnerable. CHC has recruited health professionals to the area, provided jobs for hundreds of area residents, and collaborated extensively with others to find better solutions to community needs.
