Native American Community Clinic
Boozhoo! Welcome to NACC!
NACC is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) in the Phillips neighborhood. The clinic was founded by four women (three physicians and one nurse practitioner) in 2003. The clinic serves all people, but is committed to providing a place where Native Americans can feel at home as the primary population at NACC. Although eighty five per cent of our patients are Native American, we do not receive Indian Health Service funding.
NACC provides Medical, Dental and Counseling services. We also have an active Community Health department that includes a Dietician, Diabetes Case Manager, Patient Advocate, Health Educator and Prenatal Case Manager. The team provides a variety of classes, health fairs and equipment and exercise classes through the Running Wolf Fitness Center which is scheduled to reopen at the Phillips Community Center in the spring of 2011.
We believe in the empowerment of every person and encourage them to become involved in improving their own health-physically, emotionally and spiritually.
