The History Behind Honor Community Health

Honor Community Health was established in 2011 – under the vision and guidance of Oakland Community Health Network (OCHN) – as a community-based 501 (c)(3) providing comprehensive primary care to the vulnerable populations of Oakland County, Michigan – starting with Pontiac and Waterford Township.

On October 31, 2012, Honor Community Health received designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Look-Alike, allowing us to effectively address the significant gaps in health care provided to homeless individuals and people with mental health needs, as well as confront the glaring disparity in life expectancy.

Since our inception in 2012, we have seen a 200% increase in number of patients served and more than doubled our number of health care delivery sites. Since receiving FQHC designation, Honor Community Health has served more than 22,000 patients across eleven integrated primary care and dental sites throughout Oakland County.
