HCHC Board Statement on Racism

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.
