Our Mission, Vision, & Model of Care
At Union Community Care, our purpose is to spark equity through patient-led healthcare that welcomes and strengthens our communities by integrating body, mind, and heart through 360 care – urgent sick care, behavioral health support, social support, family medical care, dental care, and a pharmacy —all in the same area or nearby our 11+ locations throughout Lancaster & Lebanon.
We envision vibrant and healthy communities supported by inclusive healthcare that embraces each patient’s unique culture, needs, and values, and emboldens them to make healthful choices that fuel their well-being and the well-being of others.
We believe in whole health. This means we address and heal disease but equally important, we work at the causes of the causes, the social ills that must be addressed to achieve true equity.
We listen, learn, and embrace the complex lives and unique strengths of our patients, and we work hard to break down all barriers to care. This means we look through a grassroots lens. We connect with our community because we are our community. Each of us is a neighbor, a friend, a family member, and together, we are a trusted community health center.
What it means to be a Federally Qualified Health Center
Union Community Care is part of a larger movement of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), which are community-based, non-profit organizations that provide a full range of primary and preventive healthcare to their communities.
FQHCs are created by individuals in a community coming together with a mission to improve access to healthcare for those who are looking for a health home, those who don’t have health insurance, those who are under-insured, and those who are under-resourced, medically underserved and vulnerable. Every FQHC is different, but they all care for patients in a hyper-local, culturally-welcoming, and free-to-be setting.
FQHCs are vital resources in any community, and uniquely offer discounted rates or fees for medical and preventive dental services, 340B program savings on medications, and good faith estimates.
