Mission "To provide comprehensive, accessible and affordable health care that is of the highest quality".
Background
Community Health Centers, Inc., began seeing patients in November 1973.  CHCI has expanded to include a homeless site in 1988 and the first rural federally qualified health center in Logan County in 2002- Mary Mahoney Health Center @ Langston.  The Perry A. Klaassen Family Medical was established in 2007 and is qualified as the only School-linked Health Center in Oklahoma County.  CHCI just received a Notice of Award that funding was approved to develop a new access point health center- Dorothy M. Smith Family Medical Center in rural Lincoln County, Oklahoma.  There were five women who resided in Parker's Heights, the community immediately north of the Mary Mahoney Memorial Health Center, who began the process to establish a health center within the community.  The pioneering leaders were: Mrs. Lena Jackson, Mrs. Daisy Mitchell, Mrs. Laura Neff, Mrs. Dorothy Smith and Ms. Alma Trotter.  Mrs. Smith serves as a Member Emeritus of the current Board of Directors and the newest health center is named in her honor for the more than 40 years that she has dedicated to volunteering and embracing the mission to provide comprehensive high-quality health care services to all.
Impact
CHCI Board of Directors adhered to the Strategic Plan of 2012 to increase access to patients by applying for a New Access Point funding application through HRSA to develop a new health center in Lincoln County, Oklahoma.  CHCI received Notice of Award (NoA) in June, 2012.  CHCI received a HRSA Capital Development grant in 2012 to increase the square footage at the Mary Mahoney Health Center site by nearly 6,000 sq. ft. to develop a Women's Health wing.  All current x-ray and mammography equipment will be replaced with digital equipment as well as the dental equipment.  CHCI's homeless health center- Healing Hands Health Care Services will be completely renovated inside to redesign the workflow and will be completed with all new equipment and furnishings.  A dental clinic space was added to the Mary Mahoney @ Langston health center to provide oral health services to this rural area.  One goal for the upcoming year is to seek funding to purchase digital dental equipment for the newly expanded site.
Needs
CHCI operates a homeless health center- Healing Hands Health Care Services.  There is never a charge for any services to the homeless.  Medications for the homeless is a need that can be met through monetary donations.   
CEO/Executive Director Statement

Most of us strive to “do the right thing”, but sometimes it is difficult to know what the right thing is. That is the dilemma we, at Community Health Centers, Incorporated (CHCI) often face.

 

Because Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) receive federal funding, the general perception is private donations are not needed. Quite the contrary is true. Federal funding accounts for approximately 30% of CHCI’s annual expenses, yet 69% of our patients are homeless, uninsured or underinsured.

 

Herein lies the dilemma. With an ever increasing demand for services and a stagnant budget, how do you select WHO you serve? We continue to try to meet the demands of the community, but without the aid of private donors and corporate sponsors, our doors will either partially or fully close. Then, our patients will end up accessing costly Emergency Room services or occupying expensive hospital beds.

 

It is everyone’s best interest for CHCI to continue to “do the right thing”, but we can’t do it without your help.

Board Chair Statement The medically uninsured and underinsured are, for the most part, also the disenfranchised. And the perception that they are disenfranchised by choice is a major misperception. Many hold down two part time jobs and go to school to make ends meet as they try to improve their lives.

These folks are at a huge disadvantage before they ever step across our thresholds. They have had to make tough decisions about whether food, clothing and housing are more important than care for their dental caries, their hypertension or their diabetes. As a mother, I know if faced with a decision to feed my children or buy insulin, I would probably choose to feed my babies all-the-while knowing I could be shortening my life…its instinctive…just as parents turn over cars that fall on their children, parents put themselves last.

Fundraising for children pulls at everyone’s heart strings, so it is easier to raise money for causes related to little people. But the money needed to insure these little people do not lose their parents to early and preventable death and end up in the system or worse…is a whole different story. I’m hoping people who contribute through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation can see beyond the obvious and donate to Community Health Centers, Inc. Last year, 69% of our patients were uninsured.
