CHC is a private, non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization which has been a member of the community health center movement since 1979. Nationally, CHC’s are the third largest healthcare provider in the country. CHC is a safety net provider of primary health care to Salt Lake County’s uninsured, low-income families. From simple roots as a “free clinic,” CHC has grown to encompass four Salt Lake County-based health centers, two dental clinics and a rural farm worker clinic in Brigham City.
We are not a “drop-in” clinic, as we provide a medical home for individuals and families. By being a medical home, we are able to provide a continuum of care for our patients.
In 2007, CHC served 32,685 persons with 101,388 visits. 64% of our patients were uninsured and 74.4% were of Hispanic descent. 99% of the people served in 2007 were at or below 200% of the federal poverty line. 62% were females. CHC delivered 1,216 infants during 2007 and immunized 92% of our one year old patients.
