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, call 812-421- 7489 to schedule a new patient appointment. You can also walk in to schedule the appointment at any of our four clinic sites. 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 four 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.”
