Our Mission ~ is to be a Center of Excellence which provides quality patient centered care to the diverse members of our community.

Our History ~ La Red Health Center, (LRHC) operated as a 24 hour/7 days per week telephone hotline to facilitate access to medical care for individuals with no or limited English proficiency. Referrals were made to a network of primary and subspecialty care physicians who were bilingual and who treated patients at discounted rates.

In February, 2001 LRHC was started by a network of physicians in Sussex County to meet the needs of a growing number of locally uninsured individuals. The physicians partnered with a local community hospital, a local community center, a local faith-based organization, and local government to help individuals in Sussex County who faced significant barriers to healthcare. The opening of LRHC represented the culmination of multiple years of needs assessment and collaborative public and private planning.

In April 2003, LRHC transformed to an independent, federally and privately supported ambulatory care center.

In April 2004, LRHC became a Federally Qualified Health Center,( FQHC) Look Alike.
