In 1978, a group of citizens from the Trilby Civic Group met out of concern for people in need in the area. This group of volunteers secured donations to open East Pasco Health Center in January of 1979 and became the inaugural Board of Dir...ectors. The first patients were seen in a modular facility that served as a health center with one primary care physician providing services to medically underserved patients. Later that year, the center was fully incorporated as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. It was designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center and a Migrant Health Center, led by a consumer majority community board.
From those humble beginnings, the center went through names changes, location changes, renovations, expansion, and significant growth. Its current name, Premier Community HealthCare Group, Inc., was established in 2004 to better brand itself as a primary care provider for the entire county. Premier Community HealthCare has grown from serving a few hundred patients in a modular unit with one provider and less than 10 employees to serving more than 25,000 patients at eight Pasco County locations with an average of 170 care team members. Two additional Hernando County locations were opened in 2017. Since its inception, the organization has provided more than one million patient care services.
Today, Premier Community HealthCare employs a highly skilled, compassionate and culturally diverse workforce that is committed to improving the lives of residents and removing healthcare barriers for the uninsured and medically underserved communities through high-quality, affordable and accessible primary and preventive care.
