About Crescent Community Health Center
Crescent Community Health Center opened its doors in October of 2006. Founded by a dedicated board of directors, made up of members of the community who identified the need for primary medical and dental care for underserved populations. Since then, Crescent has been providing primary and preventative medical and dental care to the members of our community, serving more than 6,400 patients last year. Crescent’s mission is to provide high-quality, respectful and affordable medical and dental care to improve the health and well-being of our community.
Crescent has been recognized for quality and it’s patient focused approach year after year by the Iowa Primary Care Association, the Alliance for Integrated Medication Management, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, and received the Health Center Quality Leader Award in 2017 & 2018 from the Health Resources & Services Administration.
In 2015 the Board identified the need for an expanded facility and completed necessary facility and feasibility studies to develop a plan for an expansion from it’s current 15,000 sf location to a nearby 25,000 sf location in the neighborhood. Today, that project is underway, and in Summer 2019, Crescent Community Health Center will move into its new location.
