Federally Qualified Health Center

The main purpose of a FQHC Program is to enhance the provision of primary care services in underserved urban and rural communities, and the Quad Cities is one of these areas.  Last year we served more than 40,000 patients, or roughly 10 percent of the Quad City population. This includes patients with and without health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid patients, veterans, homeless persons, and private pay patients.  We have a Sliding Fee Program that allows patients to pay based on their income and family size. 


We meet the following FQHC requirements:


  • Serve an underserved area or population

  • Offer a sliding fee scale

  • Provide comprehensive services

  • Have an ongoing quality assurance program

  • Have a governing board of directors


This designation also means that we are eligible to receive Section 330 grant funding to support these efforts. Currently, this support equals about 15 percent of our operating budget. The rest of our operating funds come from support from private  donors, corporate support, grant funders, foundations, and patient fees.

Community Health Care, Inc. receives HHS funding and has Federal Public Health Service (PHS) deemed status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.

Patients with concerns about patient care and/or safety within Community Health Care, Inc. are encouraged to contact the CHC Quality Team. If the concerns cannot be resolved by CHC, the patient can contact the Joint Commission's Office of Quality Management to report concerns or register complaints about us by either calling 1-800-994-6610 or emailing complaint@jcaho.org.
