Who We Are

Incorporated on February 27, 2003, the Community First Health Co-op was first created by a group of concerned citizens with the goal of enhancing and supporting local health care services. The CFHC is a thriving organization dedicated to supporting comprehensive local health services for all members of our communities.

Mission

The mission of the Community First Health Co-op is to enhance the health and wellness of communities, families, and individuals by providing services through a co-operative partnership of consumers and health service providers.

Vision

The Community First Health Co-op has a vision for Nelson and Area as healthy communities where people have equal opportunities for good health.

Values

The Community First Health Co-op’s strategies, policies, and organizational relationships will be based on the following values:

  • Local Control
      We believe in open membership, democratic member control, and cooperative autonomy.
  • Communication/Education
      We believe in communicating in an atmosphere of openness, honesty, and trust. We believe in providing education and training for our members so they can contribute effectively to the development of the co-op and assist in developing solutions for wellness in our communities. We believe in informing the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperation.
  • Cooperation
      We believe in working cooperatively. We believe in developing partnerships and relationships with individuals, organizations, and communities to achieve our purpose and vision.
  • Community-oriented
      We believe in being community-oriented because we live and operate in our communities. We believe in being proactive by providing a variety of services within the not-for-profit structure.

The Growth of the Co-op’s Future
