Grand Opening of Community Health Care, Inc.'s East Moline Location

East Moline, IL – Community Health Care, Inc. (CHC) proudly announces the grand opening of its East Moline clinic with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, March 26th at 10:00 am. The new 8,000 square foot clinic at 708 15th Avenue in East Moline includes 11 exam rooms and 1 procedure room.

The $1.7 million project was made possible as a result of federal funding awarded to CHC as part of the Affordable Care Act. Statistics show a need for Community Health Care's service in the area. Over 16% of East Moline's residents are living below the federal poverty level. Many of them qualify for Medicaid.


Founded in 1975, CHC offers a medical and dental home for all those in need in the Quad Cities area. Services provided by CHC include internal medicine, pediatrics, women's health, dentistry, pharmacy, laboratory, mammography, and translation services. Without CHC, many patients would rely on emergency rooms during crisis, or go without care altogether. CHC has six clinic locations across the Quad Cities area including five medical/dental clinics and a homeless outreach clinic. For nearly 40 years, CHC has provided the primary care safety net for those in our community who are most vulnerable.


"The new East Moline clinic will allow us to locate services closer to East Moline and Silvis residents," said Tom Bowman, CEO of CHC. "This means that people needing primary medical care will be able to get it when they need it, in a location that is convenient to them."
