About Our Health Centers

Sterling Health Solutions, Inc. (SHS) is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that was formed in 2009 by a group of individuals with over 30 years combined experience in the local health care industry. Due to the poor health status of the region, the corporation was formed for the purpose of applying for a New Access Point Community Health Center (CHC) to increase access to medical, dental and mental health care in Bath, Menifee, Montgomery and Nicholas counties in Appalachian Eastern Kentucky. The CHC project was funded as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in June 2012.

Each of the counties in the SHS service area has an underserved federal designation (MUA or MUP). Because the counties are all underserved and have high rates of chronic diseases (especially heart disease, diabetes, and asthma), our target population is the entire service area. Our service area also includes a large number of persons living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. While lack of health insurance was once a serious problem, we continue to work diligently to sign up as many area people as possible for health insurance.

We continue to work closely with our local Public Health Departments, including contracting with them to perform clinical services for the Title X program and breast and cervical cancer screening.

This health center organization is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a FTCA deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).
