Incorporated in 1998, Central Valley Health Network is comprised of 15 Community Health Center corporations designated as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). CVHN was established to conduct advocacy at national, state, and local levels on behalf of its Central Valley membership of FQHC’s and their unique patient population specific to the Valley. CVHN’s members are located in, and serving, high-need communities throughout California’s greater Central Valley, they provide comprehensive primary health care services to low-income and medically underserved families. FQHCs serve people of all ages, people without and with health insurance, and people of all races and ethnicities.
