National Health Center Week gives us a chance to bring light to the health needs in our communities and the shared stake in community health. We hope to demonstrate not only what we do but how our unique model of care is offering solutions to the nation’s health care crisis. Health Center Week is intended to help rally public support and understanding of our mission. We understand that public support and confidence in our programs translates into a growing partnership with the public and private sectors so that we can serve greater needs and lead to a more equitable health delivery system for all people.
The theme for National Health Center Week 2017 (NHCW) is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities.” As a local community owned and operated business, River Valley Health and Dental Center serves over 13,000 patients in the river valley of Lycoming County.
The goals of National Health Center Week are twofold: to enhance the visibility and profile of our community health centers; and to generate community pride and build support for our program. National Health Center Week provides an ideal occasion for us to celebrate our record of success and delivery of high quality, cost effective, and accessible care.
In addition to our history as your health care home, we join with Health Centers around the nation in celebrating over 50 years of service and their continued ranking among the highest quality and cost effective care providers. We are proud to provide care to all people, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status.
