About Us

In 1994, when others were closing their doors to those without health insurance, we were opening ours. Believing that all people have a right to high quality health care, our goal is to remove barriers to care and to provide that high quality care to you in a place that is convenient - in your neighborhood, where you live, work and play. And all under one roof. We believe all people should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their situation. And that is what you'll experience when you walk through the doors of CHAS - your health care home.

Community Health Association of Spokane (CHAS) is a non-profit, federally qualified health center (FQHC) providing high-quality medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health services to families and individuals of all ages, regardless of insurance status. We currently serve approximately 52,000 patients each year throughout Spokane County and the Lewis-Clark Valley. We expect to continue to grow and bring new jobs to our economy, while providing a healthcare home to more people in the Inland Northwest. Our goal is to provide a brighter, better, healthier future for all families.


Our Mission

The mission of CHAS is to improve the overall health of the communities we serve by expanding access to quality health and wellness services.
 

Our Board of Directors

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, CHAS is a “patient led” organization.  51% of the Board of Directors are active, registered patients of CHAS, and are representations of the diverse population we serve at our clinics.

If you are a CHAS patient, that means your peers are important decision makers in regards to your health and wellness needs.  The Board of Directors makes important decisions to make sure access to affordable and high quality healthcare is granted to you and your neighbors, and that our clinics meet the needs of our community members.
