Rinehart Clinic hosts National Health Center Week events

Theme: Celebrating our legacy, shaping our future
In addition to their long history as health care homes to millions, Health Centers are also proud to celebrate 50 years of service and continue to be ranked among the highest quality and cost effective care providers in the nation. Health Centers provide their services to all people, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status. Each year we set aside three days during NHCW to recognize special populations served by Health Centers. This year we are celebrating Public Housing Health Centers Day (Tuesday, 8/11), Health Care for the Homeless Day (Wednesday, 8/12), and Farmworker Health Day (Thursday, 8/13).
