Why Alluvion

doing healthcare differently

At Alluvion Health, we are committed to doing healthcare differently, based on the needs of the community and with the hearts of our patients at the forefront of our decisions. We have found innovative and creative ways to bring healthcare to our patients, all the while addressing the barriers that keep our community in poor health – from access to food, housing, employment, and civil legal assistance – to the actual location of places to deliver healthcare and have fundamentally reinvented how care is delivered. We are committed to delivering better care by treating the whole life, getting much better outcomes, and demonstrating that there is indeed a better way.

Alluvion Health is a not-for-profit Federally Qualified Health Center focusing on providing high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive primary and preventive medical, dental and behavioral healthcare. Alluvion is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of at least 50% consumers and is funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Primary Health Care. This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).

Creating and Inspiring Healthier Lives

We believe that everyone matters, that we are an agency committed to being and doing healthcare differently, focused on whole-person, whole-life care.
