About Us

Our Mission

The mission of SW Community Health Center is to assure quality health services to those lacking adequate resources to access necessary care. We do this by:

  • serving as a safety-net clinic that provides basic health services, including preventive care and chronic disease management;
  • utilizing the volunteer skills of health professionals and community members to provide quality care in a safe, reassuring and culturally-sensitive manner;
  • providing referrals for necessary care that exceeds our scope of practice; and
  • advocating for quality health services for all.
Our Vision

All people have access to quality basic health services regardless of their income, ethnicity or social circumstances.

Our Values
  • Equity - All people deserve access to quality health care.
  • Respect - Each one of us - whether receiving or providing care - has dignity and is treated with respect.
  • Accountability - We are stewards of the community’s trust, dollars and services. The services we provide have value.
  • Reciprocity - A healthy community is a strong community. The services we provide not only address the health needs of our neighbors but enrich the lives of those providing care and support.
