Overview and Mission

Nevada Primary Care Association (formerly Great Basin Primary Care Association) (NVPCA) is the federally designated Primary Care Association for the State of Nevada. NVPCA is dedicated to assisting health centers and other community health providers with the implementation of solid business practices and community-responsive programs in an effort to improve service delivery effectiveness and efficiency. Our work is based on maximizing resources, developing a strong intersection between medical care and public health at the community level, and using sound business sense in developing capacity to serve those who do not have access to mainstream health care.
We are a non-profit membership organization that was founded in 1995. We serve Section 330 funded and prospective Federally Qualified Health Centers, tribal health centers, other primary care clinics, and community health providers throughout the State of Nevada. These organizations are located in the Reno, Sparks, Carson City, and Las Vegas metropolitan centers, as well as the frontier and rural Nevada counties that make up 87 percent of the state's land mass. NVPCA supports collaboration and coordination among existing health centers and other community health providers to improve and expand access to comprehensive primary care services throughout the state.
Our goal is to provide our membership with current and accurate information necessary to service Nevada’s population, including, underserved and low-income residents. The training and technical assistance services we offer include facilitating information exchanges, outreach programs, support services, access to government resources, and speaker symposiums.
