About the Organization
Northern Counties Health Care, Inc. (NCHC) is the largest Federally Qualified Health Center system in Vermont, and the only one which also operates a home health care and hospice division. This means we offer an unrivaled level of care coordination for the whole family throughout the full continuum of care: From preventative care, gynecological care, chronic disease management and behavioral health services to dental care, physical therapy, homemaker services. From pediatric/adolescent care to adult/geriatric and end of life care, we provide complete, compassionate care for the whole family in our home or yours.
NCHC provides quality care to over 18,000 individuals; nearly one-third of the 64,000 residents of the Northeast Kingdom. Over 75,000 encounters are made each year through a rural network of five community health centers, two dental practices, a Medicare-certified home care and hospice division, a comprehensive AIDS/HIV care clinic, and a partnership with three different hospitals and many community partners/agencies.
FQHCs provide vital primary care to 17 million Americans with limited financial resources. Directed by boards with majority consumer membership, FQHCs focus on meeting the basic health care needs of their individual communities. They maintain an open-door policy, providing treatment regardless of an individuals income or insurance coverage. FQHCs serve community residents from all walks of life, including people enrolled in employer-based insurances, Medicare/Medicaid, or public health insurances. We also serve people with limited resources who struggle to access care through traditional channels, including the homeless, residents of public housing, migrant farm workers and others with emergent and chronic health care needs.
