Now What?

To our community partners who help us keep northern Arizona healthy, THANK YOU!


We are debuting the next short video of our series, “North Country HealthCare’s Partners.”

North Country HealthCare is a community health center. Community health centers keep communities healthy. We couldn’t do what we do without our partners in schools, hospitals, community groups, homeless shelters, churches and local businesses. Your health matters to our community partners, too.

The idea for a community health center like North Country HealthCare was first birthed in 1991 when a small group of doctors and nurses, health and human service advocates and consumers worked together to establish the Flagstaff Community Free Clinic. These partners teamed up to offer affordable, accessible primary health care to Flagstaff residents. The clinic was such a success that, in 1996, it transitioned from a volunteer organization into a state and federally-funded Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). Since that time, North Country HealthCare has expanded to serve in 14 communities across northern Arizona, from the Colorado River to the New Mexico border.

At North Country HealthCare, it is our mission to provide affordable, accessible, quality primary care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect where the health and well-being of patients and community are promoted through direct services, education, outreach, and advocacy. We could not do this without partnering with many local and national organizations who are aligned with our mission to care for northern Arizona.

Some of our partners include school districts throughout our service region, which allow our medical and dental teams to provide basic care for their students without the trouble of missing school to travel to an appointment. We also partner with several behavioral health organizations to offer integration clinics, where a patient’s physical and mental health can be cared for simultaneously. We partner with homeless shelters, local jail systems, and local businesses to bring care directly to those who need it most. 

Another purpose of North Country HealthCare is to educate and train Arizona’s future healthcare workforce. Not only do we train medical students in the primary care setting of our clinics, but we also work with hospitals and other health organizations to offer students a variety of hands-on learning experiences during their time in medical school.
