The vision of the Virginia Community Healthcare Association is for the Commonwealth of Virginia to have the healthiest population in America.
Virginia Community Healthcare Association (VCHA), established in 1980, is a non-profit membership organization that serves as the primary care association for Virginia’s thirty community health centers and look-alike health centers. Membership in VCHA is open to all Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Center look-alikes operating delivery sites in Virginia.
VCHA supports its health centers in their mission to provide access to health care regardless of geographic location or ability to pay. VCHA works with health centers, community leaders, and partners to enhance access to affordable, high-quality health care and to find solutions for expanding access to care in areas that need it most.
VCHA is an integral part of Virginia’s health safety net, which includes Virginia’s Community Health Centers (CHCs), nonprofit rural health clinics, community-based providers of primary care, and health departments providing primary care services, and other similar organizations.
