A Message from GMHC Leaders

Great Mines Health Center is a regional Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), established in 2003.  Great Mines Health Center offers Eastern South Central Missouri residents increased access to quality health care.  A FQHC is a private non-profit or public health care organization located in or serving Federally designated underserved populations.

Each FQHC is governed by a local patient-majority board of directors, and provides comprehensive primary health, dental and mental health/substance abuse services to persons of all ages, income levels and insurance status, regardless of ability to pay.  The charges for services at a FQHC are discounted to patients according to a sliding fee scale, based on family size and income.
