National Health Center Week (NHCW) is an annual celebration that raises awareness about the mission and accomplishments of the nearly 1,400 local health centers in the United States. This year’s theme is “rooted in communities,” which highlights the long history of health care homes creating innovative solutions to pressing local health issues.
From August 4 to August 10, 2019, Advantage Care Health Centers will recognize NHCW at both its Brookville and Freeport locations with a slate of special events. The week-long celebration of community care will include both fun and educational activities.
Tuesday, August 6 is Patient Appreciation Day at Advantage Care. Everyone who visits one of our two locations will have the chance to participate in raffles, photo opportunities and much, much more. As we celebrate the special relationships we have with our patients, we will be sharing health-related tips, tricks and tests.
Advantage Care will host its Staff Appreciation Day on Thursday, August 8.

National Health Center Week is a chance for patients and staff members to celebrate community care and everything it has come to represent. It is the one week of the year that is dedicated to honoring health centers for the good work they do all year round.
Over the last half century, community health centers have become an integral part of our health care system. Every year, health centers provide primary care, dental, mental and behavioral health and other types of medical services to nearly 30 million Americans. These medical facilities have developed a strong reputation for providing affordable, accessible, quality care to people who tend to have limited access to medical services.
Advantage Care is one of Long Island’s leading community health centers. We provide comprehensive services, which are coordinated, accessible, reliable and efficient. Whether you need a flu shot, a depression assessment or a preventive procedure, Advantage Care is always here to help. If you would like to learn about how we can improve your well-being, stop by and join us in the celebration of National Health Center Week!
