History

FCHC has health center locations in Clewiston, Fort Pierce, Indiantown, Moore Haven, Okeechobee, Pahokee, Port St. Lucie, and Stuart with FCHC’s Corporate Office centrally located in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

FCHC is a private, non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)3, consumer directed corporation which is designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), and is accredited by The Joint Commission (JC), as well as recognized as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

We have a comprehensive health care system in place with over 400 employees,  nearly 100 of which are clinicians. We provide pediatric and adult primary and preventive care; preventive and restorative dental services; and OB/GYN services. Our patients benefit from a “medical home” model, where they may access and benefit from our extensive array of health care clinicians and services at each location, creating a “one-stop shop” for their primary health care needs.

Utilizing a sliding fee scale (SFS), based on annual federal poverty limits (FPL), we are able to  determine the amount of financial responsibility each patient carries regarding their health care services. Patients who are at or below 100% of FPL have their health care needs provided by FCHC at a nominal charge.
