CVHS - Statement on Race

Since the inception of the health center program in the 1960s, the foundation of community health centers has been to provide health care services to those who are medically underserved and to disenfranchised populations.  For 55 years, health centers across the country have worked tirelessly to provide high quality, compassionate care for people regardless of their race, economic status, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Like the rest of the nation, CVHS is deeply saddened by the events that have unfolded across our country over the last several months. Our patients and community are like family and we grieve alongside with you.  The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless African Americans who have died senselessly, have brought to light systemic racism that exists today. As a safety net provider, we observe first-hand the racial disparities and injustices in healthcare, the economy and society that hurt generations of Americans in communities of color. Being on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, we see daily how people of color and those who are underserved are disproportionally impacted.  CVHS is committed to the mission of removing barriers to care for all, and believes that all humans have the right to high-quality health care.  As an employer, CVHS benefits from and values the diversity among our staff and does not accept bigotry, hatred, racism, harassment or killing humans because of the color of their skin or ethnicity.  I assure you that CVHS will continue to live by our mission of “providing safe, accessible, affordable, comprehensive, high quality and culturally sensitive care to the people we serve.”
