Community Care Network of Kansas — formerly known as the Kansas Association for the Medically Underserved (KAMU) — exists to achieve equitable access to high quality health care for all Kansans. As the Primary Care Association (PCA) for the state of Kansas, Community Care supports and strengthens its members — a network of community health centers and primary care clinics that share a mission to provide access to comprehensive health care — medical, dental, and behavioral health — for all Kansans, regardless of ability to pay.
