Community Health Clinic opened in 1975 in the home of a Nurse Practitioner. Later we moved to an office building abandoned by Union Carbide Corporation. In 1994, UMETCO donated the office building and surrounding property to our parent organization, Dolores County Health Association. And then we began to grow!
In 2000 we added on 3200 square feet, making room for specialty care, and for Dolores County Health Nursing Services. Another addition in 2005 provided space for our new Community Dental Clinic. Then, in 2010, a two-story addition allowed for expanded dental services, and additional space for billing offices.
This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 I.S.C. 254b, and an FTCA Deemed Facility under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).
