Update on Funding Crisis

February 6th, 2018

The House of Representatives are scheduled to vote on crucial funding for Community Health Centers today. Community Health Centers across the nation are facing financial crisis due to the failure by Congress to pass a bill before October 1, 2017 when funding expired. We urge you to contact your Representative and Senator and let them know you support Community Health Centers and the critical work they do every day. Here is a link to an article about what is going on across Georgia. For more information and other ways that you can get involved, visit Health Center Advocacy Network

As always, we thank you for your support!

Mrs. Dulcie Moore

September 15th, 2017

It is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Mrs. Dulcie Moore, RN. She has been in healthcare most of her life and before being part of Tri County Health System she ran her own community health center in Sparta when it was a stand-alone. In the late 70s, early 80’s it merged with Tri- County to become one health center and she continued her faithful service to community health. When Community Health Care Systems and Tri County merged, she continued her faithful service in the health center community. Our offices in Sparta, Warrenton and Gibson are closed today in honor of Ms. Dulcie.
