•TCHC is a fiscally responsible, independent, not-for-profit community health center and a key member of our community's vital health safety-net.
In the early 1970’s Tri-City Health Center (TCHC) first opened as a women's health clinic, offering Family Planning health services and pregnancy counseling. Since then, our services have expanded to include medical and dental services that meet the needs of the entire family. Recognizing the rich diversity in our community, Tri-City proudly offers comprehensive services and specialty care programs, delivered by a capable and caring staff that speaks ten different languages! Over the years we have stayed true to our mission of providing quality healthcare services to the underserved and uninsured families in our community, without regard to financial position, ethnicity language, culture sexual orientation, or the ability to pay.
Tri-City Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), which requires that we are governed by a community board with a patient majority. The beauty of this system is that patients do not just pay for their health care, they also "have a say" in how their health care is delivered through their patient representatives on the center's governing board. The patient-majority governing board is a core statutory requirement that every health center must meet in order to receive federal funding.
For over thirty-five years, Tri-City Health Center has provided quality health care services to the underserved in Southern Alameda County. Last year alone, our clinics provided services for over 19,000 patients with more than 70,000 yearly visits. 77% of patients are below the poverty level, and 67% of patients who visit the clinic are uninsured.
