HIV & AIDs | Treatment & Specialists

In accordance with our mission of improving the overall health of the communities we serve, CHAS Health launched its first HIV clinic in 2000 with the goal of helping hundreds of patients throughout Washington, Idaho and Montana manage their HIV. Since its inception, our program has expanded to three locations including our Denny Murphy, Valley, and Southgate clinics.

Integrating our HIV/AIDs services into select clinic locations ensures our patients see the same friendly faces for all their healthcare needs, including our specialty services. Not only is the quality of our customer’s healthcare important to our staff, we also care about them individually and see them as extended family. This inspires CHAS Health staff to offer the very best care to every single patient.

Finding a health care team that is knowledgeable about HIV care is important in managing treatment and CHAS Health takes a team approach at our clinics. The HIV care team is made up of a Provider, Case Manager, Nutritionist, Behavioral Health Provider, and Pharmacist.
