Health Care Access serves as a welcoming health home in Douglas County for persons with limited financial means.  We create access to a continuum of community based services to promote health and well-being.  Through an active collaborative spirit we advocate for healthy people and communities.  

Throughout two decades of service to Douglas County, we have provided primary care services, referrals to specialists, prescription medication, and health education to over 14,000 of our friends and neighbors, without incurring debt and without federal funding.
