Community Health Care Is Celebrating 50 Years of Service in Pierce County!


Help Us Celebrate!

Community Health Care history dates back to 1969 when local physicians and concerned citizens recognized the need for access to quality healthcare for Pierce County’s low-income and under-insured residents. They established two volunteer clinics to help fill that void. In the spirit of these dedicated community members, Community Health Care is celebrating our 50th Anniversary, celebrating 50 years of providing quality, accessible healthcare for all.

Do you know a “Health Hero?”

A healthy community is more than just access to clinical care. A healthy community encompasses all facets of what makes a community thrive. To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, Community Health Care is pleased to announce our Health Heroes program. Do you know someone or a group or organization that has made a contribution to a healthier Pierce County?

A Health Hero can be your neighbor who grocery shops for a disabled friend. A Health Hero can be a neighborhood group that meets one Saturday a month to pick up trash at the local park. A Health Hero can be a business that provides much needed services to the community.
