In January 1986, Dirne Community Health Centers was incorporated as an Idaho 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Heritage Health, originally named “Dirne Community Health Clinic” was largely conceived through the pioneering efforts of one individual, Lidwina Dirne. Upon personally witnessing the devastating impact that inaccessibility to healthcare had on a single mother with disabilities who could not afford basic medical care for herself or her family, Lidwina mobilized a community-based effort to find solutions.
