A brief history...

A charter was granted to Three Rivers Area Health Services on September 6, 1978, by the State of Mississippi. In 1981, Three Rivers received funding from the Bureau of Primary Healthcare, Department of Health and Human Services to operate as a Community Health Center according to the provisions of Section 330 of the Public Health Act. The grant provides resources to expand medical and dental services to all individuals regardless of their ability to pay by offering a sliding scale payment structure. The board voted to change the name from Three Rivers Area Health Services to Access Family Health Services in February 1996.
