Statement from HCHC's Board of Directors
The Hilltown Community Health Center is deeply committed to health equity, and stands in solidarity with all those who oppose race-based injustice. HCHC was founded over 70 years ago to provide care to all community members. Given recent events, and in recognition of this country’s historic discrimination in the provision of health care against people of color, we pledge to be sensitive to the experience of our patients who have experienced such racism. We pledge to redouble our efforts to address the inequities in the health care system that disproportionately affect communities of color. The HCHC Board of Directors pledges to support our staff members and community members by creating a health care environment that is welcoming and affirming for all.

Hilltown Community Health Centers
For over 65 years, HCHC’s mission has been to provide accessible, affordable services to ensure the health of all Hilltown residents. We’re dedicated to the health and wellness of our Hilltown communities and provides a wide range of services at our five sites. In addition to medical and oral health/dental services, we provide behavioral/mental health services, substance abuse treatment, eye care, physical therapy, and laboratory services. We also provide numerous community services and supports. Federal funding supports some of this work, as do insurance payments, but these are not sufficient to cover all the services we provide. We rely on grants from foundations and other sources, as well as on individual donations, to support new initiatives and all of our community programs.
We look forward to working with you as a team to ensure you receive the care and services needed to keep you and your family healthy.
