Celebrating National Community Health Center week- August 14th-18th, 2017

Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities

Each August we recognize the outstanding contributions of and services delivered by America's Health Centers.  Our theme this year is "Celebrating America's Health Centers:  Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities" - and that is exactly what we do here at the Will County Community Health Center.  Community Health Centers, also known as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC's) are non-profit, community-directed health care providers located in medically underserved rural and urban communities where health care resources are scarce.  Health centers provide access to care regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. 

Join us in celebrating this week packed full of daily activities.  Just click on the attached pdf for details of FUN, FUN, & FUN!
