Community Health of Central Washington responds to community needs with innovation and collaboration to develop sustainable programs and services that drive health care equity.
Community Health of Central Washington was founded with one bold and clear vision: All people in our region should enjoy access to affordable and appropriate health care.
That sounds simple enough. But providing quality health care service is complex. That vision has caused us to grow, and to provide a wide array of services in multiple sites.
Education has always been an important part of our mission. Our family medicine residency has operated since 1993, and is responsible for graduating nearly 30 family doctors who practice in our area and have helped to ease the primary care shortage. We also participate in training many other health care professions.
