Nature Coast Community Health Center "Promoting A Healthy Hernando" Florida Department of Health

The Nature Coast Community Health Center (NCCHC) is a collaborative project between NCCHC, Inc. and the Hernando County Health Department (HCHD). Established in 2005, the Nature Coast Community Health Center operates from three sites throughout the county and works in tandem with community partners to achieve Healthy People 2010 goals to increase quality and years of healthy life, and eliminate health disparities. This is possible by building partnerships with local, state and federal agencies. These major linkages to the community include partnerships with area health care institutions, county government/Board of County Commissioners, Department of Children and Families, Head Start, School Board, civic associations, YMCA and area worksites.  The NCCHC/HCHD also has a long-standing history of preceptorship to students from the University of South Florida College of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing as well as other educational institutions.

Services offered at the Nature Coast Community Health Center are designed to address these major and unique health indicators within its target population: age adjusted death rates for: cancer, diabetes, suicide, hypertension, unintentional injury, respiratory disease, in addition to low birthweight rate; teen birth rate; and late entry into prenatal care. By utilizing the existing physical and administrative infrastructure of the Hernando County Health Department, the NCCHC provides primary, dental, behavioral health and pharmaceutical services to area residents.  Additionally, the Nature Coast Community Health Center utilizes a network of specialty care referral arrangements to meet previously unmet health care needs of its clientele. As such, the Nature Coast Community Health Center is designed to better meet the long-standing and emerging health needs of county residents.

The NCCHC is an active member of the Hernando County Health Care Advisory Board, Gulfcoast North Area Health Education Center, Florida Public Health Association (FPHA), National Association of County Health Officers (NACHO), Florida Association of County Health Officers (FACHO), National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH), American Public Health Association (APHA), Greater Hernando Chamber of Commerce, and the Florida Association of Community Health Centers.
