Countdown to the Launch of National Health Center Week 2016
Community Health Centers in New Hampshire and Vermont are ready to celebrate National Health Center Week , August 7-13, with family fun events and an open invitation to community members to stop by for information on the health care services available at their local Community Health Center.
Beginning with the establishment of the first Health Center in 1965 in Massachusetts, the Community Health Center model has spread across the country to every state. Today, there are more than 9,000 Health Centers serving 23 million people. Nationally, Health Centers save the health care system $24 billion annually, generate $26.5 billion in economic activity and engender more than 230,000 jobs. Because of their long record of success in innovation, managing healthcare costs and reducing chronic disease, leaders in Congress have declared Community Health Centers a model of care that offers a “bipartisan solution to the primary care access problems” facing our nation.
Vermont and New Hampshire Community Health Centers provide health care to all ages, including primary and preventive medical and oral health care, behavioral and mental health care, and substance misuse treatment. Contact your local Community Health Center in New Hampshire or Vermont anytime for information on how to access health care services.
