Treasure Coast Community Health (TCCH) has provided primary health care in Indian River County (IRC), Florida for over 20 years. Originally founded in 1993 as the Fellsmere Community Health Coalition, and serving the small rural citrus and ranching population of the area (including migrants and seasonal farm workers), this non-profit organization was approved as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in 1995.
Following the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes that devastated the Treasure Coast region of eastern Florida, TCCH's Governing Board of Directors took the bold step of a planned expansion to improve access to care throughout the county, with a corresponding name change to Treasure Coast Community Health.
Today, TCCH provides comprehensive primary and preventative care to approximately 16,000 individuals annually between its four IRC locations. TCCH uses a primary care delivery model, called a Patient Centered Medical Home, to provide integrated and comprehensive medical, dental, and mental health/substance abuse services to all people, whether insured, uninsured, or under insured, offering a sliding fee scale discount program based on income and family size.
Additional services that remove barriers to care, like prescription assistance, translation services, social service referrals for food and housing, Medicaid eligibility/ enrollment, and assistance understanding the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace (through Certified Application Counselors), are offered by our Health Navigators.
TCCH's goal is to deliver exceptional primary care and support services, to educate and promote positive lifestyle changes, to eliminate health care disparities within our county, and to improve the quality of life in Indian River County.
