Mission Statement

The mission of Cooperative Health is to provide comprehensive, high quality compassionate medical care in the spirit of the Good Samaritan. The Cooperative is a federally qualified, community-based comprehensive medical safety net that provides access to primary healthcare services for a traditionally underserved population.

Safety Net for the Community

The Centers provide access to quality primary care and are a "medical home" to many, especially those with children in nearby medically underserved areas of Columbia and the Midlands.

The Centers are among the largest community health center in the state. The insured and uninsured are welcome. A sliding scale of fees, called the "Good Samaritan Plan," is available to help those in financial distress.

The Centers are a private, non-profit corporation. They are supported through revenue from patient services and gifts from many individuals, churches, civic groups, corporations, and foundations.
