Who We Are

HealthFinders Collaborative (HFC), is a community health center which provides a comprehensive primary access point to health services for the marginalized families of Rice County. Through primary care, medication assistance, patient education and advocacy, and community-based wellness programming, HFC works across the continuum of wellness to collaborate and engage communities in their own health. HFC believes in the inherent capacity of our patients and communities to support health and wellness.

Established in 2005, HFC is a growing non-profit in the dynamic field of community health care.

Medical, Dental and Wellness Care

HFC provides a comprehensive access point to health and wellness opportunities.  In addition to primary medical and dental care, HFC has a range of chronic disease management and wellness programs.  Patient Advocates connect patients to insurance through MNsure, and community organizers and health workers engage communities in what helps them become healthy in their context.

Our Mission, Vision and Values

As the healthcare landscape evolves, HFC is committed to providing clinical and community-based care that supports communities in becoming healthy in their context. We have committed ourselves to growing and evolving, as we strive to ensure that everyone has access to the healthcare no matter what their life circumstances.

HealthFinders Collaborative provides quality healthcare, advocacy, and wellness education to people within our community who have limited healthcare alternatives.

For everyone in our local community to have access to the healthcare they need.

Our values are the foundation for everything we do at HFC.

  • We believe in the power of our communities and patients to be healthy.
  • We believe that everyone has the right to both necessary and effective health care, in addition to wellness education.
  • We are committed to health care that is accessible, affordable, high quality and culturally appropriate.
  • We support our volunteers and community partners to act collaboratively, in a spirit of dignity, compassion and respect.
  • We are responsive to the changing health and wellness needs of our community.
  • We provide outreach services in the community, recognizing that not all who would benefit from our services, have yet come to us.
  • We strive to diligently maximize, and be good stewards of our financial and other resources.

In the Community

HealthFinders Collaborative goes beyond the exam room and into the communities where health and wellness is happening.  We mix principles of community engagement with long-term partnerships between local hospitals and clinics, as well as dozens of partner organizations, schools, and government service agencies.  HFC combines community organization with coalition building and system change to build healthy and equitable communities. Only together can we tackle the significant health and social determinants essential for our community’s well-being.

Powered by Volunteers
