National Health Center Week (August 9-15) is an annual celebration that raises awareness about the accomplishments of America’s health centers over the last 50 years. For this year’s National Health Center Week, health centers across the nation are “lighting the way for healthier communities today and in the future.”

As an FQHC, our mission is to build healthy communities & enhance well-being.
In honor of National Health Center Week, we are thrilled to share with you the strides we have made in home health, hospice care and visiting physician services.
What is a Health Center? How Does it Differ?
Health centers are community-based organizations that deliver comprehensive health care services to people in need. They tend to be located in areas where economic, geographic or cultural barriers limit access to affordable, quality healthcare services. These health centers also tend to focus on the most vulnerable populations such as residents of public housing, those experiencing homelessness and veterans.
Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey Community Health Center, Inc. (VNACJ CHC), a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), has provided comprehensive primary and preventive health care for infants, children, and adults of Monmouth County for more than 27 years.
