The St. Croix Regional Family Health Center (SCRFHC) is a Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC). We are a private, nonprofit organization, which has been providing health care since 1991.
The mission of the St. Croix Regional Family Health Center is to promote the health and well being of the people in the region.
The St. Croix Regional Family Health Center is a federally qualified community health center. It was organized to develop and maintain a health care delivery system of the highest quality for all people regardless of social or economic circumstances, in a confidential, respectful and humanistic manner.
The vision of the St. Croix Regional Family Health Center is to provide a medical home for the residents of the area. We strive to provide high quality, cost-effective primary health care as well as mental health and substance abuse services to all who need them. Our plan is to add dental health services in the near future as well as other services, as funds permit, as part of an integrated delivery system.
We collaborate with all other health care service providers in the area in an attempt to provide the most comprehensive services possible in order to best serve the needs of our community.
The Health Center was founded in 1991 after a group of concerned citizens met in the kitchen of one of the present Board members to seek a resolution to the virtually complete absence of primary care services in Northern Washington County.
The original health center was located in rented space on the main street and had one medical provider, a nurse, and a receptionist. The volume of patients seeking care soon required expansion, however, and funds were eventually raised to build a new health center at the current location on Mill Street in 1998. There were only enough funds to complete the top floor of the two story building at that time, but the first floor space has been worked on over the past couple of years, and will be completed this year. We were able to add Mental Health and Substance Abuse services in 1993, and have plans to add Dental Health services in the near future.
We are fortunate to have an extremely dedicated and able Board of Directors, several of whom have remained on the Board since the health center’s inception. They all reside in the community, many are health center patients, and their insight and judgment has ensured that the health center continues to grow at a steady and fiscally responsible rate.
