About Axesspointe Community Health Center

AxessPointe Community Health Centers are federally qualified health centers (commonly called community health centers) located in Northeast Ohio. Originally named Akron Community Health Resources, Inc., the first center located in Akron, OH received funding in 1994 from the Bureau of Primary Health Care to establish the first federally qualified health center in Summit County and began providing services in August 1995. A FQHC is a not-for-profit corporation that delivers primary medical, dental, mental, and preventive health services in medically underserved areas. FQHCs receive operating grants under Section 330 of the United States Public Health Service Act. In order to comply with federal law, FQHCs must be established as a not-for-profit corporation and the majority of the board of directors must be consumers of the services provided by the facility. In 2008, the Board of Directors voted to extend our services to Portage County. The AxessPointe/Kent site is located in Kent, Ohio on Route 59, convenient to both the communities of Kent and Ravenna. AxessPointe/Barberton site was awarded a New Access Point status in June 2012 and opened to service the Barberton community in February 2013. In 2014, two additional sites were added. The new sites reflect the Board of Directors commitment to provide access to quality healthcare for the underserved. The new sites are AxessPointe/Portage Path, a cutting edge integrated care project coordinated with Portage Path Behavioral Health Services, and AxessPointe/Akron General Broadway, a collaborative with Akron General Health System to improve access to care in the 44311 zip code and surrounding areas. The AxessPointe/Akron General site is the first community health center in Akron to provide the specialty services of Obstetrics/Gynecology and Internal Medicine. Our target population is the uninsured, under-insured, and Federally insured patient (Medicaid and Medicare) who may not have access to affordable medical and dental care. The high quality and credentialed health care teams at each AxessPointe site provide diagnosis, treatment, and preventive medical and dental services. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, most private insurances, and provide a sliding fee scale for patients without insurance.
