Altura Centers for Health formerly (TCHC) has been providing medical and dental care to the community since 1995.
Historically the clinic was owned and operated by Tulare Local Health Care District. It was purchased from Tulare District Hospital (TDH) and Altura first became a Federal Qualified Look-A-Like Clinic in 1997. In 2000 we officially became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and are an FTCA deemed facility.
Altura is governed by a committed Volunteer Community Board of Directors which meet once a month and serve on several committees. The majority of the Board of Directors are patients of Altura making our facility a clinic governed by its patients and the community. The majority of our providers are contracted with the clinic allowing us to have many specialists available to our patients. This has resulted in a continuity of providers allowing the patient and provider to build a long-lasting relationship.
