ECHO Community Health Care

Our Mission Statement

We provide AFFORDABLE, ACCESSIBLE & APPROPRIATE comprehensive healthcare to the uninsured, under insured and the homeless. Quality services are provided by our team of caring, respectful professionals who advocate for the patient.


The Vision of our Organization:

“To eliminate health disparities in our community”



“Welcome to ECHO Community Health Care, Incorporated.  We are glad that you have found our webpage and  we look forward to serving your medical needs.

ECHO is a federally qualified health center (FQHC), whose focus is on primary and preventative medical care.  You do not need medical insurance to become a patient at ECHO.  We offer care on a “sliding fee” basis, which is adjusted to your family income and size.  Do you have health insurance coverage?  You are welcome here too!

To begin receiving medical care at ECHO, I encourage you to walk in to the John St. Clinic or Main Campus Clinic Monday – Friday 8-11; 1-4 and meet with the patient advocate to complete paperwork. We are here to serve you.

Care is provided by dedicated individuals who will offer you respect and professionalism each step of the way.  We are here to assist you at 3 locations, which can be found under the “LOCATIONS” tab of this webpage, and through expanded hours which cover evening appointments.

Again, we welcome you to ECHO.”
