Eastern Iowa Health Center (EIHC) was founded in 2008 to strengthen the healthcare safety net in Eastern Iowa. Our 2020 Annual Report shows the impact we have on healthcare within our community. We continue to fill gaps in care for underserved populations in our region to this day. The commitment to our patients in providing second-to-none quality, and comprehensive, affordable healthcare is at the core of our work.
2020 was another successful year for our organization—but it provided unprecedented challenges. The first pandemic in 100 years, along with the sometimes daily changes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Iowa, and many other influential and data-driven advisors yielded fits and starts, pivots and prevention and testing and treatment for COVID-19.
