What we’re about:
The Good Neighbor Community Health Center, is a separate non-profit organization with its own governing board that is housed within and shares key management staff with the East-Central District Health Department.
GNCHC is a federally qualified community health center (FQHC). An FQHC is a federal designation given by the Bureau of Primary Health Care at the federal Department of Health and Human Services. FQHCs are either located in, or serve, a federally designated medically underserved area/population. All FQHCs must operate under a consumer Board of Directors governance structure, and provide comprehensive primary health care, dental, and mental health/substance abuse services to persons in all stages of the life cycle. The Federally Supported Health Centers Assistance Act of 1992 and 1995 granted medical malpractice liability protection through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) to HRSA-supported health centers. Good Neighbor Community Health Center is an FTCA Deemed Agency.
The mission of the Good Neighbor Community Health Center is to work in collaboration with established community service organizations to increase access to primary preventative health care in order to improve the health of the underserved and vulnerable population.
The Good Neighbor Community Health Center (GNCHC) in collaboration with federal, state and community partners provides affordable, comprehensive, accessible, culturally respectful, appropriate, cost-effective, quality primary medical health care, dental services and behavioral health services with special attention to the underserved.
