Dear Valued Patient,
On behalf of Health First Community Health Center, it is my pleasure to welcome you. At Health First, we strive to be your partners in health, caring for you and your family through every stage of life. Health First is committed to connecting you with resources you need to improve your health and live your best life. This site was created to help bring those resources to you.
I began my career in healthcare more than 20 years ago. I worked on the Labor & Delivery unit at a small hospital where I helped to bring new life into the world. There, I saw many families experience the happiest moments of their lives, but I also saw many at their most vulnerable moments. I saw mothers and children facing terrible health obstacles that in many cases could have been prevented with earlier intervention. My experience on Labor & Delivery committed me to a lifetime of service, specifically working to care for those who are most vulnerable, and who are in need of hope and assistance.
At Health First, we strive to offer just that — hope and assistance with health problems and the financial obstacles that can sometimes go along with medical issues. Since day one, it has been one of our highest priorities to make quality healthcare affordable and accessible to everyone. That’s why you’ll find us located in your hometown and neighborhoods with familiar faces ready to serve you. Today, we have eight locations throughout Western Kentucky, including Caldwell, Daviess, Henderson, Hopkins, McLean and Webster counties. We serve approximately 8,000 patients annually with a total of 30,000 patient visits. That’s an awesome responsibility that I assure you we do not take lightly.
At each of our convenient locations, you’ll find modern facilities, progressive medical equipment, and smiling faces from staff members. As our logo states, your health is our first concern. So, check out our web site to learn more about us and the important programs we offer. Be sure to read about our sliding fee scale, a program that means you’ll pay what you can afford based on your family size and income. Also, read about our prescription drug discount program, a way we can help you get the medicines you need to get well and stay well. And be sure to read about the many other services we proudly offer as part of your true medical home.
We look forward to the privilege of serving you.
Be in good health,
LeAnn Langston, RN
Chief Executive Officer
