CNHC at Columbus Public Health
Visitors to Columbus Public Health who do not have a medical home can visit our location in the Health Department building to receive initial urgent treatments and be registered as a patient in our systems for ongoing care.
History and Vision of Columbus Neighborhood Health Center, Inc.
In 1998 seven Columbus Community Health Centers merged into what is now Columbus Neighborhood Health Center, Inc. (CNHC) The U.S Department of Health and Human Services designated CNHC a federally qualified health center to increase access to health care in Columbus, OH. Today, seven health centers remain, all located within culturally and economically diverse neighborhoods of Columbus.
CNHC's commitment to high-quality service, personal patient care, and access to state-of–the-art technology enables us to remain the fastest growing urban health center in central Ohio. Our patients have access to primary healthcare, dental and vision services, nutrition planning, diabetes education, and other specialty medical services for the entire family within their own neighborhood. CNHC is dedicated to improving the quality of life through providing access to the highest possible quality healthcare.
Economic Impact of Community Health Centers
Community Health Centers (CHC) are successful, low-cost options for primary care access in a nation that spends $2 trillion a year on health care. Medical cost for CHC patients are 41% lower compared to patients seen elsewhere such as a hospital emergency room. As a result CHC’s save the healthcare system between $9.9 billion and $17.6 billion a year. If community health centers received the funding from Congress, an estimated 30,000,000 Americans could have access to high- quality primary care by 2015. This would mean a $40.7 billion dollar impact on the U.S. economy and 460,000 full-time jobs. If every American made use of preventative primary care the healthcare system would see $67 billion in savings annually.
