About the Organization
The Community HealthCare Association of the Dakotas (CHAD) is a non-profit membership organization that serves as the Primary Care Association for North Dakota and South Dakota, supporting community health centers (CHCs) in their efforts to provide health care to underserved populations across the two states. CHAD works with health center members and other community leaders and partners to enhance access to affordable, high-quality health care and to find solutions for expanding health care services in areas of the Dakotas that need it most.
Community Health Centers (CHCs) are non-profit community-driven primary care clinics. Each clinic provides high quality primary and preventive care to all individuals, with or without insurance and regardless of their ability to pay. CHCs provide integrated and comprehensive services including medical, behavioral, dental and vision care.
Community Health Centers (CHCs) are located in both rural and urban settings throughout North and South Dakota. In rural communities, the CHC program supports a communitys ability to retain local health care options, supporting access to health care where rural Dakotans live and work. Across rural and urban sites, health centers are the essential medical home where patients find services that promote health, diagnose and treat disease, manage chronic conditions and disability and help them cope with other life challenges that prevent them from getting healthy and staying healthy. In the Dakotas, community health centers serve nearly 100,000 patients at 62 delivery sites.
