  • Our Mission

    La Red Health Center's Mission is to be a Center of Excellence which provides quality patient centered care to the diverse members of our community.

  • Our History

    La Red Health Center, (LRHC) operated as a 24 hour/7 days per week telephone hotline to facilitate access to medical care for individuals with no or limited English proficiency. Referrals were made to a network of primary and subspecialty care physicians who were bilingual and who treated patients at discounted rates. In February, 2001 LRHC was started by a network of physicians in Sussex County to meet the needs of a growing number of locally uninsured individuals. The physicians partnered with a local community hospital, a local community center, a local faith-based organization, and local government to help individuals in Sussex County who faced significant barriers to healthcare. The opening of LRHC represented the culmination of multiple years of needs assessment and collaborative public and private planning. In April 2003, LRHC transformed to an independent, federally and privately supported ambulatory care center. In April 2004, LRHC became a Federally Qualified Health Center,( FQHC) Look Alike. In 2005, LRHC was awarded FQHC status and federal funding started in 2006

  • Health Tips

La Red Health Center represents a network of quality care centered around you and your family.
 
As a leading provider of medical, dental and mental health services in Sussex County, Delaware, we understand the effect that quality health care can have on a person's life, and we work hard every day to make a positive impact for those who need it most.
 
I am delighted to report that our efforts were affirmed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, (NCQA) which recognized LRHC as a Patient-Centered Medical home, (PCMH). A PCMH is a model of care where patients have a direct relationship with a provider who coordinates a cooperative team of healthcare professionals, takes collective responsibility for the care provided to the patient, and arranges for appropriate care with other qualified providers as needed. Both LRHC's Georgetown and Seaford sites went through a rigorous, comprehensive quality assessment in order to achieve this distinction.
 
We are very proud to have received this honor, and our staff is committed to providing the highest level of quality care that results in better health outcomes for our patients.
 
- Brian S. Olson, Chief Executive Officer
