Community Health Centers* are nonprofit, community-based primary care health organizations which are established to provide comprehensive health care services for communities where a significant number of residents do not have access to health care. Anyone is eligible to enroll in our Community Health Center, regardless of where they live. We see persons of all ages, newborn and up. You do not have to have any health insurance, although we do accept Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance. Regardless of whether you have insurance or not, our doctors will care for you and your family. No patient is denied care due to an inability to pay.
We are supported by local government grants, as well as a grant from the Federal Government and from the Commonwealth of Virginia. We also receive grants from local foundations and donations from community members and businesses. HealthWorks is a Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Deemed facility, which means that our malpractice coverage is provided at no charge by the Federal Government pending submission of an annual application and approval.
*This health care model was authorized under the Consolidated Health Center Programs of section 330 of the Public Health Service Act administered by the United States Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Primary Health Care. Community Health Center funds are granted through a competitive process.
