The non-profit association supports community health centers and clinics serving the safety net in the Inland Southern Region. The Association provides advocacy, public policy promotion and education, as well as resources and networking opportunities for 17 organizations in the membership which represent 46 community-based primary care health centers and clinics throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In 2016, member health centers and clinics reported 459,719 annual patient visits, serving 176,509 unduplicated patients across the Inland Southern Region.


We exist to support our membership and community partners to ensure accessible, high-quality, and cost-effective health services.
