What is a
Federally Qualified Health Center?
Federally qualified health centers, commonly referred to as community health centers, are community-based health care providers that receive federal funds to provide primary services in underserved areas. They must meet a stringent set of requirements, including providing care on a sliding fee scale based on ability to pay and operating under a governing board that includes patients. They offer primary medical care, dental, and a variety of other medical, behavioral services based on the community they reside in, and the needs of those being served.
Center for Family Health is honored to be a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) since 2000. As an FQHC, we are held to the highest standard of regulations under the federal government.
