The Virginia Community Healthcare Association is the Primary Care Association (PCA) for the Commonwealth of Virginia. All states have one designated PCA to advance the expansion of Virginia’s Health Centers commonly known as Community Health Centers (CHCs), and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). We advocate for the health care interests of the medically underserved and uninsured by helping secure access to care in areas where access is scarce. In other words, our Association serves the people of Virginia by serving our Health Centers.
The Association has many programs to assist Community Health Centers and the Virginian’s they serve. These programs vary from Training, Technical Assistance, Provider Recruitment and Locum Tenens, Cooperative Purchasing, Advocacy and Policy, and Peer Networking Committees for the sharing of Best Practices. We are an integral part of the Virginia Health Safety Net.
