On average, we serve 25 individuals each day. Our nurse practitioners provide skilled checkups and preventative care for our clients, often treating chronic diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes and asthma. Whenever our clients need help from a specialist, we provide referrals to medical professionals in the community and then oversee their ongoing treatment via a nurse case manager.
Ritter Center is a State of California Licensed Community clinic and Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). This means that we are able to offer our services to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. For anyone whose income is below the poverty line, our services are free. Individuals with incomes between 101% and 200% of the Federal Poverty Line must be charged, using a sliding fee scale, with discounts based on family size and income. FQHCs qualify for enhanced reimbursement through Federal funding.
