Who We Are

About Iowa Association of Rural Health Clinics

We are a group of concerned clinicians who formed the Iowa Association of Rural Health Clinics (IARHC) in 1995 to collectively raise the level of awareness of policy makers about issues facing certified Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) in Iowa.

Our Mission: Shape long term rural health policy to improve patient care and optimize clinic operations.

Our Vision: Ensure all individuals in rural Iowa have access to quality, affordable, coordinated and comprehensive health services.

The Iowa Association of Rural Health Clinic is managed by the Iowa Primary Care Association (Iowa PCA), a non-profit membership association comprised of community health centers and the Iowa Collaborative Safety Net provider Network, including rural health clinics. The mission of the Iowa PCA is to provide leadership by promoting, supporting, and developing quality health care for underserved populations in Iowa.
