Expanding to Meet Your Needs

Promise Community Health Center is the only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in far northwest Iowa. Promise opened its doors in 2008 after recieving FQHC incubator funding from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). From 2008 to 2012, Promise was recognized as an FQHC Look-Alike. FQHC Look-Alikes serve their communities by providing FQHC services without federal funding. In June 2012, Promise recieved New Access Point funding from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Achieving designation as a FQHC was the culmination of more than ten years of community based efforts to bring a community health center to Sioux county. Originally known as Greater Sioux Community Health Center, we changed our name to Promise to celebrate the fulfilled promise of bringing an FQHC to northwest Iowa. 

Promise is a comprehensive health home that provides primary medical and dental services. Behavioral health services are provided onsite through referal relationships. 

Promise seeks to achieve health equity in our community by prividing Affordable, Accessible, Quality health care services to all who seek it. Everyone is welcome at Promise, and we will gladly accept patients with insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, Hawk-I, and no insurance. Promise is not a free clinic, but accepts payment for services using a comprehensive sliding fee scale that takes into account family income and family size.
