Providing 360 Care
We believe in whole health. Body, mind, and heart. So we’ve integrated 360 Care – dental care, medical care, urgent care, school-based health care, behavioral/mental health support, social support services, and pharmacy services – all in the same area or nearby. This means we provide care when you need it, where you need it, and how you need it.
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.
Vibrant and healthy communities supported by inclusive healthcare that embraces each member’s unique culture, needs, and values, and emboldens them to make healthful choices that fuel their well-being and the well-being of others.
Our model of care
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 communities because we are our communities. Each of us is a neighbor, a friend, a family member, and together, we are a trusted community health center.
Your Patient-Centered Medical Home
Union Community Care is a nationally recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home because of our inclusive approach to providing healthcare services that reflect the cultures, values, and needs of the individuals we serve. Our progressive Care Teams care deeply for their patients and bring unique experiences and diverse cultural backgrounds to our communities.
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, payment plans, and programs that keep their services affordable. No one will ever be turned away for care if they can’t pay.
What we STAND for
Seeing those around us
We meet every family, friend, and neighbor where they live, relate to their lives, and see them as the brave, complex, and unique human beings that they are.
Telling the truth
Our conversations are difficult and bold, because our intentions are centered around equity for each other, our patients, and our communities.
Asking the right questions
We notice when things are cracked or broken, if our communities have been silent for too long, or if they are loudly trying to tell us something. We are proactive in asking questions to enact real change in our communities.
We aren’t afraid to stand strong in our purpose. When we stand strong in our purpose, we let the voices in our communities be heard. When we stand strong in our purpose, we change lives.
Different frame of mind
When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. We work from the inside out to address the causes of the causes that call to be addressed to not only spark, but achieve, true equity.
