The Community Health Center Difference

Adelante Healthcare is proud to be a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) — part of a network of health providers dedicated to improving the health of their communities.

Community health centers are thriving, patient-centered facilities that practice wellness, collaboration and excellence.

The Community Health Center difference includes:

  • Being a non-profit, so our centers are not focused on treating as many patients as possible, but instead can focus on working with each patient to get well, be well and live well
  • Offering comprehensive care that treats the whole person. Most community health centers offer a variety of services including primary medical care, dental, prescription and mental health services. Many also offer pediatric, nutrition, exercise and other wellness programs.
  • Focusing on delivering services that respect the diverse cultures and needs of their patients.
  • Leading the pack with technology including the use of electronic medical records to better coordinate the care our patient receive.
  • Compiling and analyzing health data about our communities to better understand and treat chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma or obesity.
  • Being led by a Board of Directors on which a majority of the members are patients of our centers. That makes us responsive to the needs of our patients and our communities.

Mostly, being a community health center means starting with you.  Working with you to take an active role in improving and managing your health.
