Community Health Care, Inc. (CHC) offers primary, preventive, acute and chronic care, as well as dental, behavior health, OB/GYN, laboratory, pharmacy, school-based health, WIC, nutrition, and health education services. Without CHC, many patients would be forced to rely on emergency rooms for their primary care, or they would go without care altogether. In recent years, CHC has made great strides, many of which were made possible with the assistance of generous donors in the Quad Cities area. The number of patients that CHC serves on an annual basis has grown to more than 45,000 individuals, more than 10 percent of the Quad City's total population. ​

  • Providing medical, dental, and behavioral health care to our patients for more than 45 years

Our Patients

All of our patients can apply to receive assistance through our Sliding Fee Program that allows patients to pay for their services based on their income and family size.
