BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard Health Alliance is marking its 18th year as Brevard County’s only Federally Qualified Health Center, providing extensive primary health care services regardless of ability to pay.

“We started out with two clinics and 16 employees, caring for about 2,000 patients. Fast forward to today, we have 13 clinics, almost 500 employees, and just last year, we cared for more than 60,000 people per year,” shared Austin Helton, CEO of Brevard Health Alliance.

“We started small, but we have grown to be a pillar of the community.”

As Brevard County’s Community Health Center, it is the mission of Brevard Health Alliance to provide the highest quality of healthcare to those in the community. The organization currently serves one in ten residents in Brevard County and continually aims to expand its footprint, adding more and more health services to meet the growing needs of the county.

“It has been amazing to watch our organization evolve and grow with Brevard County over the last 18 years,” said Helton. “I can’t wait to see what the next 18 bring.”
