Community Health Systems, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) 330 HRSA Grantee with Federally Qualified
Health Center (FQHC) status. Established from the roots of Bloomington Community
Health Center in Bloomington, CHSI has grown with community health centers in
the counties of Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego. These centers have
been developed in accordance with standards established for safety net
providers by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Health
Resources Services Administration (HRSA), the Public Health Service (PHS), and
the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC).
The mission of CHSI is not to compete with other clinics that provide healthcare services,
but to serve the indigent population and meet their healthcare needs. CHSI is a Health Center Program
grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n),
and therefore receives Malpractice insurance coverage under the Federal Torts Claim Act(FTCA).
As such, services are offered to the neediest in each community - the
un-insured and under-insured, the working poor, those with limited ability to
pay, the homeless, and the indigent. Services are provided at discounted
(sliding fee scale) rates for those who qualify based on gross annual income
and family size.
