Tri-State Community Health Center

Fulton County, PA

Tri-State Community Health Center (Tri-State) was incorporated as a private non-profit entity in 1987. Tri-State was established by the community to help assure that comprehensive primary healthcare services would be available to the area’s under-served, rural population with a high concentration of low-income residents. Tri-State operates five community health center sites that offer community-based primary care, preventive health services and Ob/Gyn. The sites are located in Allegany and Washington counties in Maryland; Fulton County in Pennsylvania; and Morgan County in West Virginia.

Although, the primary target population for Tri-State Community Health Center is low-income, uninsured and underinsured individuals and families, we serve all patients with and without insurance. Our office participates with most insurance companies and will even submit to workers compensation and motor vehicle accident insurances. All five sites are located in extremely rural communities with limited employment opportunities and medical services. Due to the limitations, these communities are economically challenged and have high rates of uninsured, unemployment and poverty. Tri-State locations, partnerships, outreaches and comprehensive services allow the organization to address the unique needs of the rural population.

The organization has grown steadily in health center users and medical visits due to the expansions and the increase in need. In 2016, Tri-State provided services to 19,247 community residents facilitating about 65,000 encounters. These services are currently provided through the employment of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and a wide range of clinical and administrative support staff, creating over 130 jobs in the communities served by Tri-State.

The Health Center offers, directly and through collaborative arrangements, a wide range of general, primary care and health maintenance services, CLIA-waived diagnostic laboratory services and other diagnostic tests and screenings, family planning, urgent medical care, after-hours coverage, immunizations, HIV testing, obstetrical and gynecological care, mental health treatment and counseling, developmental screening, vision screening, hearing screening, oral health screening, health education, transportation, translation and case management services. Services provided off site through referral arrangements include dental care, mental health and substance abuse treatment and counseling, crisis intervention and hospital care.
