About the organization


North Country HealthCare (NCHC) is transforming healthcare for rural Arizonans. NCHC is an outpatient, primary care, federally qualified health center with a teaching and learning mission. We started as a volunteer-run free clinic in 1991 and now serve 12 communities across the entire northern half of Arizona. We turn no one away. We practice integrated care in an innovative culture. Our model allows us to serve patients holistically through strong provider and staff relationships and through on-site labs and our own 340b pharmacy.
