Health First is committed to improving the wellness and health of Brevard, whether that’s caring for the customers who come through our doors or those seeking help throughout the community.
Through collaboration with several local nonprofit organizations, outreach programs are here to meet the needs of the community we serve. Health First is proud to support the Brevard Health Alliance (BHA), the county’s only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), which includes BHA’s Mobile Clinic. In 2018, Health First provided $171 million in community support. BHA was one of those beneficiaries.
A supplement to BHA’s locations throughout Brevard, this mobile clinic aims to provide extraordinary care to the medically underserved in our area on a weekly basis. No appointments are needed for those seeking medical care – services are provided first come, first served.
BHA provides care for underserved patients with a complete range of services, including adult medicine, pediatrics and pediatric urgent care services, dental services, behavioral health services, women’s health services, as well as pharmacy services for their patients.
BHA began as the HOPE (Health, Outreach, Prevention & Education) Clinic at Health First’s Holmes Regional Medical Center in 1995. Since 2005, when the HOPE Clinic evolved into BHA, Health First has continued as a loyal supporter with an annual grant of a $1.1 million, as well as the provision of in-kind diagnostic services.
