The Primary Care Association of Kansas

About Community Care Network of Kansas

Community Care Network of Kansas is comprised of community care clinics with a common goal of providing high-quality health care that is accessible to all Kansans. Since 1989, our membership has collaborated to help educate lawmakers on healthcare and health policy issues, advocated for funding, and promoted the availability of services statewide. As the federally designated Primary Care Association (PCA) for Kansas, we represent 22 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) or Look-Alikes, as well as 15 primary medical and dental clinics. Our member clinics have grown into a strong network of health care providers across the state. They are more than just a “safety net” for the underserved – they are providers of choice. They are community clinics.

Counties highlighted yellow indicate counties in Kansas where Community Care member Federally Qualified Health Centers, Look-A-Likes, and community clinics are located.
