Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s Health Care Heroes
National Health Center Week (August 12th- 18th) is an annual celebration
with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments
of America’s health centers over the past five decades.
Health centers serve 27 million patients a number that continues to grow
along with the demand for affordable primary care. In addition to their
long history as health care homes to millions, health centers produce
innovative solutions to the most pressing health care issues in their
communities and reach beyond the walls of conventional medicine to address
the social determinants of health affecting special patient populations.
Each year we celebrate the work and services health centers provide to
special populations within their community on designated days during the week.
