Holland Community Health Center

A Brief History

The Holland Community Health Center (HCHC) opened in 1995 with one important goal in mind...to provide primary care for uninsured and under-insured individuals and families within the greater Holland area. Driven by the philosophy that high quality health care is the right of all people, this full service, nonprofit facility offers comprehensive, affordable and accessible health care regardless of language, cultural barriers or ability to pay.

In 2004, Holland Hospital partnered with Michigan Medical, PC, a Grand Rapids-based medical provider group, to bring additional services and support to the Health Center. Combined, this partnership provides hundreds of thousands of dollars of support to the area’s most vulnerable patients.

Serving a Diverse Population

The staff of the Community Health Center cares for more than 400 patients a month – 4,800 visits a year. The Center serves a diverse population: 42% are children, 40% are White, 40% are Latino, about 49% of the patients have Medicaid or Medicare, 23% have insurance and 28% pay for services, full or in part, themselves. The services most frequently provided are immunizations for children, well-child, preventative check-ups and diabetes care.
