Since 1994, CHAS has been working to fill a gap between those who have health insurance, and those who don’t. Under federal healthcare reform, federally qualified health centers like CHAS will see an increase in demand and play a greater role in providing high quality, affordable healthcare for all families in the Inland Northwest.
CHAS currently serves nearly 50,000 patients each year in the Spokane area and the Lewis-Clark Valley. By 2015, we expect to double in size, bring in new jobs to our economy, while providing a healthcare home to more people in the Inland Northwest. Our goal is to provide a brighter, better, healthier future for all families.

Spokane offers the perfect blend of unique attractions, proximity to the outdoors, fine arts, hip nightlife, world-class dining, shopping and big-name entertainment.
Spokane is the second largest city in Washington state and the largest city between Seattle and Minneapolis. In 1974, Spokane was the first city to host an environmentally themed world's fair. That put Spokane on the map, and it is still the smallest city to ever host a world's fair. Continuing to make a name for itself, Spokane is home to the world's largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament, Hoopfest, and one of the largest running events in the world, Bloomsday.
Spokane boasts a steady economy and has expanded to nearly a quarter million residents within the city limits and over half a million residents countywide. Rich in architectural history and distinctive neighborhoods, Spokane has been featured on several affordable living lists. Spokane and nearby Coeur d' Alene were recently merged into a single metropolitan area by the U.S. Census, making it the 87th most populous metropolitan area in the United States. Spokane offers a fantastic business climate with inexpensive properties, great public resources, a talented workforce and consistent opportunities for growth and expansion.
As the center of a three state, two province region, Spokane is the destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. World-class restaurants scatter downtown and the surrounding areas. More than 20 wineries call Spokane home, and many have been recognized with national awards for their wine. Multiple live theaters, the Best of Broadway series, national level concerts and numerous local artists make entertainment easy to access any day of the week.
Spokane is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. The Spokane River runs through the heart of downtown, yet feels miles away during an early morning paddle. Five mountain ski resorts are within a two-hour drive of Spokane, giving you more time on the slopes and less in the car. Visit one of the area's 76 lakes or tee off at one of the 30+ regional golf courses without breaking the bank. Bike, walk or run through the Spokane region on the Centennial Trail, a paved path which stretches 37-miles from the Idaho state line to Nine Mile Falls. With white-water rafting, hiking and rock-climbing at your fingertips, see for yourself why Spokane is Near Nature. Near Perfect.
