What is a Community Health Center?

What is a Community Health Center?

Community health centers (CHCs) provide patients with integrated, whole-person care. Whether it’s medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy or other vital services, health centers provide all members of the community with a patient-focused medical home.

IPHCA Partnered with State Agency to Expand Substance Use Disorder Treatment in CHCs

As the opioid epidemic ravaged Illinois communities in 2016, IPHCA partnered with the Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Substance Use, Prevention and Recovery (DHS SUPR) to bring substance use disorder treatment and mental health services to CHCs across the state. In 2019, we expanded the project to clear the path to licensing for health centers that wanted to offer Medication Assisted Treatment, closing a major gap in care. To reach that goal, we were able to secure $3.3 million in funding from SUPR—funds awarded specifically to CHCs seeking to expand their services to include Medication Assisted Treatment.
