Community health centers provide health care services to people who may not otherwise be able to afford medical services. They are staffed by board-certified doctors and other clinical personnel, including social workers, pharmacists, nurses and more. Community health centers accept a wide variety of insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, but for those who have none, they operate on a sliding scale so that each patient pays according to his ability. The following centers are located in the tri-county area:
