Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are local, community-directed non-profit health centers that serve low income, medically underserved communities. Located in areas where care is needed but scarce, FQHCs improve access to care for patients regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
ChesPenn’s healthcare team is trained to respond to the health needs of residents of these communities. Our staff includes medical, dental, and behavioral health professionals, social service workers, community health educators, and other dedicated professionals.
We are “FTCA Deemed,” which means that as a Federally Qualified Health Center, ChesPenn Health Services has malpractice liability protection through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Primary Health Care.

Most important to remember is that ChesPenn Health Centers are your community health centers. Our role is to improve the health of each community in which we are located.
