Want to know more about us?
For the first 18 years of its existence, NVHC was a public entity, a consortium of counties known as Central Nevada Rural Health Consortium, originally incorporated in late 1976. It became one of the first federally funded CHCs in 1977, as authorized under the Public Health Service Act of 1976. In 1994, the organization’s name was changed to Nevada Rural Health Centers, Inc., and it became a private, not-for-profit corporation. In 2001, the organization’s name was changed to Nevada Health Centers, Inc. to better represent the organization’s mission.
The Governing Board of NVHC presently consists of 9 volunteer members, a majority of whom are users of the clinics. They represent the communities or regions where clinics are located or serve “at large” from around the state, bringing other professional skills to the Board.
NVHC also provides mammography services via our mobile Mammovan; children’s dental care through our mobile Ronald McDonald Care Mobile; and children’s medical care via the Nevada Children’s Health Project also known as “Big Blue” mobile medical unit. We also operate a centralized pharmacy that provides our frontier clinics and the Health Care for the Homeless clinics with pharmaceutical dispensaries.
After hours, one of our doctors is on-call, 7 days a week, to handle your urgent needs and concerns and to provide clinical advice. Our on-call number is 800.787.2568
