North Country HealthCare is a community health center. Community health centers keep communities healthy. We are an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) with a policy-making board of directors. As a community health center, half of our board is made up of patients that help guide our purpose to ensure patient safety and security.

As a 501(c)(3), North Country HealthCare is considered a charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS.

In order to qualify as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, a nonprofit must exist for one or more exclusively charitable purposes, such as our mission to ensure that no one in northern Arizona is without access to quality primary healthcare.

501(c)(3) organizations are highly regulated entities. Strict rules apply to both the activities and the governance of these organizations. No part of the activities or the net earnings can unfairly benefit any director, officer, or any private individual. Having 501(c)(3) status comes with compliance requirements at both the state and federal level.

Our board of directors have very defined roles and responsibilities within our organization, including hiring our chief executive officer and assessing the overall direction and strategy of North Country HealthCare. Our board is a diverse group of men and women from across northern Arizona, bringing to the table different areas of expertise. In addition, a federally qualified health center (FQHC) requirement is that 50% of our board must be patients of North Country HealthCare.
