This week, Community Health Centers across the country are celebrating National Health Center Week (NHCW) to increase awareness of the ways health centers, like New Horizon Family Health Services (NHFHS), improve the health of the communities we serve.
For more than 50 years, health centers have been the safety net for vulnerable populations by providing comprehensive primary and preventative health care to all people regardless of their insurance status. NHFHS has served the Upstate since 1992 and operates medical offices in Greenville, Greer and Travelers Rest, a dental office in Greenville, two mobile medical units and a mobile dental unit. Our mission is to provide quality, affordable, compassionate patient-centered health care to improve the health of the communities we serve. Each year, more than 28,000 individuals rely on our organization to access a variety of services including primary medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy and laboratory services.
