A Christian Healthcare Centers physician is a mature Christian; someone who is a compassionate, experienced caregiver committed to being a member of an interdisciplinary collaborative team whose mission is providing exceptional, comprehensive wellness services to the Body of Christ, guided by biblical values.

Since Christian Healthcare Centers is independent of the traditional fee-for-service model of compensation and the time and paperwork constraints associated with that system, our physicians are free to spend more time with their patients. Physicians have a maximum patient panel of only 1,000 patients. 

Services are provided to members/patients in exchange for a low monthly fee. There are no co-pays or deductibles nor is there burdensome insurance or bureaucratic compliance paperwork. Although CHC is not required to capture meaningful use and quality measures data for reimbursement or ACO compliance, the organization is committed to excellence and providers  work cooperatively to create and track patient-centered quality measures that enhance patient care delivery and achieve desirable wellness outcomes.
