Community Health Alliance
Community Health Alliance provides an extensive range of health care screening and prevention services, comprehensive primary care for all ages, pharmacy, dental services (preventive and treatment), management of chronic diseases, episodic illness care, outreach to and services for homeless individuals and families, and behavioral health care. In addition, CHA manages a WIC Program (Women, Infants and Children’s Program), the Northern Nevada Dental Health Program and Adopt a Vet Dental Program. After the merger of HAWC Community Health Centers and Saint Mary’s Mission Outreach Program on July 1, 2012, Community Health Alliance (the new organization) grew and provided more than 120,000 patient visits in Fiscal Year 2012-2013.
The outreach facility provides primary care, mental health counseling, medical screening, drug/alcohol screening and counseling, and referrals. Two chiropractors volunteer their services. The clinic is backed up by the main HAWC facility's team of physicians and dentists.
HAWC Outreach Clinic has linkages with Restart, Nevada Mental Health Institute, Department of Veteran's Affairs, and NASAC.
