Primary Care Associations (PCAs) are state or regional nonprofit organizations that provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) to safety-net providers. This T/TA is based on statewide and regional needs to help health centers improve programmatic, clinical, and financial performance and operations. PCAs can help health centers and look-alikes plan for the growth of health centers in their state, as well as develop strategies to recruit and retain staff.
The Nevada Primary Care Association (PCA) is a non-profit membership association comprised of health centers and other safety net providers in Nevada. Established in 1995, Nevada PCA’s mission is “to advocate for, broaden and strengthen the health center network.” The Nevada PCA fulfills its mission by providing technical assistance and training to our members.
Our members provide comprehensive, one-stop primary health care. Members focus on prevention and chronic disease management designed to ensure effectiveness of medical care.
Support for Nevada PCA comes from its membership, the federal government and other grants and contracts.
Nevada PCA offers its members opportunities to network and work cooperatively with other agencies and associations to develop strategies, policies and programs that lead to the efficient and effective delivery of primary health care to the underserved.
The association provides technical assistance and training to its members in several areas, including advocacy/policy, workforce, quality and performance improvement, health center development and expansion, and marketing.
Nevada PCA also undertakes special projects with an emphasis on creating opportunities for growth and developing solutions to address its members’ challenges.
Membership benefits and services available through NVPCA include training and technical assistance, public policy and advocacy, performance improvement programs, information technology, and organizational development initiatives.
