In 2019, we celebrate 25 years of serving the Inland Northwest. When Community Health Association of Spokane opened its first 2- exam room clinic created to serve individuals without insurance, we had no idea it would grow to meet such an important need in our communities. During this time, we have gone through tremendous growth, with challenges and successes. Through it all, our focus has remained on the most important thing: our patients. As we move forward, we will continue to meet the needs of our communities by expanding access to quality health and wellness services.
From the beginning, we have held a strong belief that all people have the right to high quality health care. Our goal is to remove barriers to care and provide high quality, evidence-based care in a place that is convenient - in your neighborhood, where you live, work and play - all under one roof. We believe all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their situation.
CHAS Health is a non-profit, federally qualified health center (FQHC) that provides high-quality medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health services to families and individuals of all ages, regardless of ability to pay. In 2019, we served 96,165 patients throughout Spokane County and the Lewis-Clark Valley. We expect to continue to grow and bring new jobs to our economy, while providing a healthcare home to more people in the Inland Northwest. Our goal is to provide a brighter, better, healthier future for all families.
The mission of CHAS Health is to improve the overall health of the communities we serve by expanding access to quality health and wellness services.
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, CHAS Health is a “patient led” organization. 51% of the Board of Directors are active, registered patients of CHAS Health, and are representations of the diverse population we serve at our clinics.
If you are a CHAS Health patient, that means your peers are important decision makers in regards to your health and wellness needs. The Board of Directors makes important decisions to make sure access to affordable and high quality healthcare is granted to you and your neighbors, and that our clinics meet the needs of our community members.
