This year marks our 50th Anniversary.
For 50 years, we have lived our mission to serve the medically underserved in our community. We have delivered high quality primary medical, dental and behavioral health care and have continued to grow. When we opened in 1972, we had two volunteer medical professionals and a vision. Today, as a Community Health Center, we have more than 360 team members and eight locations. Because of the vision of our founders, our steady leadership, and supportive community, we are well-poised to continue to grow and serve.
We have a lot to be proud of. We have clinics in Rockford, Loves Park, South Beloit, and Belvidere. We opened our newest clinic on West State Street on February 1, 2021 and expanded our CrusaderNOW! ™ services to that location, in addition to keeping it as the home of our leadership team. We have successfully continued patient care amidst a global pandemic and in October of 2021 saw patient volume return to pre-pandemic levels.
From the onset of COVID, we have worked collaboratively with our healthcare partners. Our team has been proactive and resourceful, particularly in testing and providing innovative treatments. Additionally, planning is underway for a new site that will help us reach even more members of our community.
It is my honor to serve as the President/CEO of Crusader Community Health, and I am grateful to our community for helping us continue to grow, thrive, and serve.
