WE ARE A PATIENT CENTERED MEDICAL HOME
ACHC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and relies heavily upon donations and grant funding. Donations are tax deductible under IRS sections 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the Code. Currently our federally - qualified health center serves about 3,700 individuals and is located at 205 N. Berkley.
Starting out as the Council Hospital, this facility met the full service & emergent healthcare needs for our rural community. Due to lack of funding, the hospital morphed into a skilled nursing home for area residents to reside with round-the-clock care.
By April 2002, the clinic was reorganized to become designated as a free-standing Rural Health Clinic, offering primary preventative healthcare. In December 2004, ACHC became a Federally Qualified Health Center and eligible to receive additional funds and enhanced reimbursement opportunities.
Home to approximately 3,900 residents and encompassing 1,365 square miles, Adams County is designated as a Primary Care, Dental and Mental Health Professional Shortage Area, as well as a Medically Underserved Population area. ACHC has grown substantially and is now the largest private employer in Adams County.
