A community health center, also known as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), is a type of clinic that's community-directed and supported by federal funding. They're aimed at serving communities that may not have access to affordable healthcare and will adjust the costs of services based on an individual's ability to pay. Community health centers provide comprehensive primary care in addition to other services such as mental healthcare, dental care, pharmacies, and treatment or counseling for substance use disorders.

One of the most popular types of clinics are those that focus on primary care. Primary care clinics cover a wide range of routine and preventive healthcare services. The doctors you'll see at a primary care clinic practice general medicine in their field. This can include family medicine, internal medicine, or pediatrics. Additionally, some primary care clinics may offer services at low cost or no cost. These clinics may be referred to as free or charitable clinics. Community health centers or Federally Qualified Health Centers offer these same services

The emergency room (ER) is a department in a hospital or medical center. Unlike a doctor's office, you do not need an appointment, but that means many people may need treatment at the same time. In that case, the most urgent problems are treated first. If you feel that your condition has changed while you are waiting, let the triage nurse know. ER's work best when they are used for truly life-threatening emergencies. If you have a serious or potentially life-threatening illness or injury, go to the nearest ER or call 9-1-1.
