Who We Are

In 1968, Pierce County Hospital, which served uninsured and low income residents, closed its doors.  Community leaders met to find a way to help individuals access needed medical care.  From this meeting, Community Health Care was born. 

Today, primary health services are provided through 5 Medical Clinics which include 3 Dental Clinics, a Women’s Health Clinic, 4 Pharmacies, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Urgent Care and Maternity Support Services.  A total of 41,081 un-duplicated patients were served through 152,926 patient visits in 2015.  Of those, 39% were children, 58% were female, 50% were minority, 56% were at or below 200% of the poverty level. 16% of our patients were uninsured. At Community Health Care, no one is denied care because of inability to pay.  Our mission is; “To provide the highest quality health care with compassionate and accessible service for all”.  Those without insurance are provided care on a sliding-fee-scale based on income and family size.
