Our Mission

The mission of Community Health Care, Inc. is to provide the communities we serve with excellence in patient-centered medical, dental and behavioral health care that is compassionate, affordable and accessible.

 Community Health Care, Inc. (CHC) offers primary, preventive, acute and chronic care, as well as dental, behavior health, OB/GYN, laboratory, pharmacy, chiropractic, 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 40,000 individuals, or approximately 10 percent of the Quad City's total population. 

  • Providing medical and dental care to Quad City patients for more than 40 years

  • We serve all patients in need including those with or without insurance, Medicaid and Medicare

  • Our CHC Sliding Fee Program offers lower cost for care

  • We welcome referrals from local hospitals and emergency room departments

  • We have Spanish and Vietnamese translators on staff. We also offer live video translation for 20 other languages

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.  Learn more about this program in our Patient Cost section.
