Since 2009, Winn CHC has been providing affordable access to quality healthcare for people living in and around Winn Parish.

Winn CHC is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). We are funded in part by the federal Department of Health & Human Services because our area was shown to be an area with unmet medical needs. FQHCs were specifically created to respond to the health care needs of people limited access to care because of their income, their medical condition, or because of the existence of healthcare professional shortages.

We have gotten a tremendous response from the community in our first years of operation that has enabled us to expand our medical offerings and grow our staff.  The Winn CHC offers primary care, oral health and behavioral health in its clinics in Winnfield including our main clinic, our dental office and our school based health center and in Grant Parish at The Grant Community Health Center.

From the day we opened our doors, we have used the latest health information technology to help deliver a high level of quality care. Our staff uses electronic medical records. We now have a patient portal that enables patients to schedule appointments, get updates from their providers, renew prescriptions and other activities without having to make a trip to the clinic.

Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to seeing you at the clinic soon. 

Thank you,

Deano Thornton
