20 Years of Rural Health Care Advocacy
The North Coast Clinics Network (NCCN) is a consortium of community health centers working to improve the Health Outcomes of our under-served populations.
NCCN’s member clinics and health centers are working together to improve access to high quality medical, mental and dental health care for all people, regardless of their ability to pay, through information sharing, community education , shared administrative activities and direct service projects.
The North Coast Clinics Network’s thirteen Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) member organizations span an area that encompasses five rural counties, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino and Trinity, in the Northwest corner of California.
In 2021, NCCN members served over 122,176 unique individuals providing over 405,084 encounters.
The community clinics located in Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino and Trinity counties have joined together as the North Coast Clinics Network to accomplish the following purposes:
• to coordinate the development of cooperative business plans which improve the quality of care and efficiency of Network members,
• to advocate for innovative Business and Health Information Technology (HIT) strategies that integrate all community providers into a comprehensive and accessible system of high quality health care,
• to promote public knowledge and understanding of the important role of community clinics and the challenges of building healthy & well communities in rural areas.
