Caring for patients, building healthy communities
Health for ALL
Since 1996, Chiricahua Community Health Centers, Inc. (CCHCI) has served the diverse communities of rural Cochise County in southeastern Arizona (an area the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined, including one hundred miles of the U.S./Mexico border) as the region’s only nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Center. CCHCI provides an array of preventative and primary care services to all people, regardless of ability to pay.
CCHCI is developed on a multi-dimensional model for Medical, Behavioral Health, Dental and Outreach services, carefully integrated with a culturally sensitive approach to address every aspect of life. While CCHCI strives to be the “provider of choice” for any person seeking care, we offer a sliding-fee program that ensures that uninsured, underinsured, veterans, migrant farm workers, and low-income residents all have access to high-quality healthcare. CCHCI currently operates clinics from five locations in Sierra Vista, Benson, Bisbee, Douglas and Elfrida. CCHCI also serves the larger county– including Willcox–via Mobile Medical and Dental Units. CCHCI is Cochise County’s largest provider of primary care services.
Programs and Services:
- Primary and acute medical/dental care for all regardless of ability to pay.
- Prevention clinics focused on optimal care of newborns, children with special health care needs and women’s health. In addition, we offer specialized clinics for chronic disease management, including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, asthma, pain management and weight management, and others.
- Care Coordination: CCHCI employs Clinical Care Coordinators that help families navigate the complexities of the healthcare system.
- Transportation: CCHCI has a fleet of vehicles that may be utilized for transporting patients and program participants.
- Visiting Specialists: To provide the best in integrated care and to eliminate the need to travel for specialty care, CCHCI coordinates with specialists to offer care within our communities.
