NHS adThe federal Department of Health and Human Services declared National Health Center Week to celebrate the role of community health centers in providing high quality preventive and primary health care to patients without regard for their ability to pay.

Community health centers have increased access to health care, nationally serving more than 21 million patients annually, including those living in poverty and without medical insurance. Hundreds of community health centers across the country are taking this week to celebrate with patients and their communities.
