First Care Clinic will celebrate National Health Center Week August 12th – 18th with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers. Community Health Centers serve more than 27 million patients in over 10,000 communities across the country. They provide access to comprehensive primary and preventative care.
First Care Clinic providers work together in an integrated setting to provide quality medical care, mental health services, and general dentistry. FCC also offers a prescription assistance program, marketplace assistance, and free group support classes. FCC accepts most major insurance, but also offers a sliding fee scale for those who qualify. The mission of First Care Clinic is to be the region’s premier medical home dedicated to providing access to compassionate, quality care for all. In 2017 FCC saw 6,160 patients with 14,681 appointments.
The medical providers consist of Dr. Christine Fisher, Medical Director; Nicole Spray, Dawn Knapp, Tosha Garrison, and Jill Kuhlmann. The dental providers include Dr. Peter Paris, Cheyenne Grauerholz, Rebecca Bittel, and Lacey Radcliffe. Sandy Cullison, Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker, is also on staff to provide counseling/mental health services.
