Statement on Health Equity
Born out of the civil rights and social justice movement of the 1960s, the nation’s Community Health Centers serve to this day as advocates for quality care and health equity for all. Our daily mission is to address health care inequities. As such, we are first-hand witnesses to the direct and damaging effect of violence, stress, physical and mental abuse on the health and well-being of our patients.
We share deep sorrow for the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others. We mourn with their families, friends and communities. We likewise look on with sadness at the anger, hate, contempt and violence spilling onto America’s streets, devastating cities across the nation, and creating fear and anxiety in citizens across this great land.
We treat everyone with respect, dignity and compassion regardless the color of their skin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, income level, ability to pay, or any other status. We are united in providing high quality, accessible, affordable health care services and serve as advocates for quality care and health equity for everyone. We also actively strive to maintain a diverse work environment that unifies, inspires, and values staff and is free from discrimination and racism.
In addition, as a community health center, we are rooted in and responsive to our community. We work with our local community partners, local government and our healthcare peers to encourage each other to be better and work together in serving our community.
