About Us

Affordable, Community-Based Care

Our mission is to provide affordable community-based health services and to promote good health in our patients and our communities.

We carry out our mission by increasing access to affordable health care that is delivered locally, reducing the incidence of preventable illness and injuries, and improving patient self-management of treatable health conditions.
