History & Mission


Starting out as the Council Hospital, this facility met the full service & emergent healthcare needs for our rural community.  Due to lack of funding, the hospital morphed into a skilled nursing home for area residents to reside with round-the-clock care. 

 By April 2002, the clinic was reorganized to become designated as a free-standing Rural Health Clinic, offering primary preventative healthcare.  In December 2004, ACHC became a Federally Qualified Health Center and eligible to receive additional funds and enhanced reimbursement opportunities.  Home to approximately 3,900 residents and encompassing 1,365 square miles, Adams County is designated as a Primary Care, Dental and Mental Health Professional Shortage Area, as well as a Medically Underserved Population area.
ACHC has grown substantially and is now the largest private employer in Adams County.

Additionally, ACHC is continuously expanding our services to meet your needs. We have routine and urgent medical care services, dental services, optometry services, laboratory and digital x-ray services and now a full service telepharmacy - all open Monday - Friday.
