Texas Association of Community Health Centers
Since 1983, the Texas Association of Community Health Centers (TACHC) has been the primary care association representing safety-net health centers throughout the state. TACHC formed when a group of health center directors - many who are still involved in the health center movement – recognized the need for a statewide organization. The association formed initially to advocate on behalf of health centers at the state level and to provide health centers with tools and services to reduce cost and improve care.
Through our work, TACHC strives to improve the health of all Texans and ensure access to high-quality, affordable primary care, particularly for those who are low-to-moderate income, under-insured and uninsured who otherwise might not have access to care.
TACHC began with 32 original members. Today, more than 70 Texas health centers serve over 1.2 million patients each year at over 350 sites in 118 counties across the state, employing more than 8,400 people. Learn more about TACHC at www.tachc.org.
