Family Health Services of Darke County, a Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC), is proud to celebrate National Community Health Center Week (NCHCW) August 7-13. The theme of this year’s NCHCW is “ Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Serving Locally, Leading Nationally” to underscore how health centers deliver a unique approach that targets health needs and saves taxpayer dollars. Community Health Centers are nonprofit, community-owned and directed providers of health care, maximizing access to health care for all people, especially the medically underserved. They are strong partnerships of people, governments, and communities who work together to meet the unique and diverse health conditions of the community. Rated as one of the most effective health care models and brightest spots in America’s health system, health centers provide a health care home to over 23 million people at 8,000 sites nationwide. Community Health Centers ensure access to high-quality primary and preventive health care and provide integrated services such as behavioral health, dental, pharmacy, outreach, patient education, radiology, translation and other support services.

Family Health Services of Darke County, Inc. is recognized as one of the premier, model community health centers in the country in providing fully integrated health services, managing chronic disease, reducing health disparities, promoting wellness, demonstrating cost effectiveness and efficiency and empowering Darke County citizens to address unmet health needs and engage in healthy behaviors. Family Health provided health services to over 21,000 individuals in 2010, at its Greenville, Versailles and Arcanum locations. Family Health also operates a Women’s Infant and Children’s program at its Greenville site and home health services through Comprehensive Health Network. In honor of National Community Health Center Week, Family Health is holding a drawing to win tote bags, T-shirts and water bottles. Any individual can submit their name for the drawing during the week of August 7-13 at any of their sites, including Comprehensive Health Network and the WIC office.
