  • About Us

    The Kentucky Primary Care Association was founded in 1976 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation of
    community health centers, rural health clinics, licensed primary care centers and other organizations and individuals
    concerned about access to health care services for the state’s underserved rural and urban populations.

    KPCA is charged with promoting the mutual interests of our members, with a mission to promote access to
    comprehensive, community-oriented primary health care services for the underserved.

    Association members are providers of primary care – first contact, broadly trained physicians
    , physician assistants, nurse practitioners, behavioral health providers, dental providers and
    other professionals delivering whole-person health care.

    We support the development of primary care services throughout the Commonwealth
    by working with federal, state and local legislators, regulatory agencies, health policy organizations,
    foundations, and payors to build a stronger primary care system in Kentucky.

    KPCA was established to:

    1. Develop a unified coalition of primary care providers.
    2. Stimulate and support development of primary health care services.
    3. Serve the needs of our members.
