WHO WE ARE

We are a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), which means that everyone is welcomed through our doors, there are no exclusions of any type. Additionally, We are YOUR non-profit community health center with locations in Bay City and Wharton, Texas.

FQHC

FQHCs are community organizations with defined target populations and service areas that have a board comprised of at least 51% of members coming from their consumers. Services are provided to Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Insured and Uninsured individuals. Patients may be eligible for discounted services on a Sliding Fee Scale based on their family size and income. Additionally, FQHCs cannot deny services due to an inability to pay.

Our Values

For over 20 years, we have upheld values formed around the following principle: the patient is the center of everything we do.

Funding, Malpractice Coverage & Programs

This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).

This health center receives HHS funding and holds a FTCA deemed facility status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.

Health Center programs assure that no patient will be denied or unable to access health care services due to an individual’s inability to pay for services and assure that any fees or payments required by the center will be reduced to enable the center to fulfill this goal.
