The Adams County Health Center (ACHC) was designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center effective December 1, 2004 and seeks to provide high quality health care services to residents of Adams County and the surrounding area, regardless of social or economic status. Home to approximately 3,500 residents and encompassing 1,365 square miles, the county is designated as a Primary Care, Dental and Mental Health Professional Shortage Area, as well as a Medically Undeserved Population area.

The ACHC acts as an entry point for health care services to a community that encompasses a fairly large rural area of Adams County. Since the county itself has no resident physicians or hospital facilities the ACHC is one of the main sources of primary care services to the county’s residents.

The nearest hospitals are located approximately one hour to the north and south of Council. Tertiary referral is handled about 130 miles away. Major trauma cases are routinely stabilized within 30 to 60 minutes from the time of arrival to transport to a trauma center. Transportation is handled by air and ground ambulance service, depending on the severity of the case.
