  • Mission:
  • CVHC provides access to health services for the Hispanic community in Jefferson and Shelby Counties in Alabama. We target the Hispanic community, but will provide services to anyone, regardless of race, age, sex, or religion.

    Our 14 Sunday afternoon screenings include an exam by dentists and optometrists, as well as a blood pressure check, dental, vision, and nutrition education. We also have programs for patients to receive glasses. All patients receive extensive follow up care by our case manager. Some patients are referred to partnering doctors and organizations, while some are referred to our clinics.

    Our 20 annual dental clinics are staffed by volunteer dentists and provide X-rays, extractions, cleanings, and fillings.

    Our 4 annual vision clinics are staffed by ophthalmologists and provide patients with in depth vision care, including a dilated exam.

    Our 8 annual dental hygiene clinics are staffed by dental hygiene students from a local college.

  • History:
  • The Board of Cahaba Valley Health Care was formed in April 2000. We conducted a needs assessment among Latinos and discovered that the major needs of this community were vision care, dental care, and acute care. In August 2001 we began implementing vision screenings and providing glasses in local churches with Latino congregations. In 2002, CVHC began to explore ways to obtain necessary dental care for Latinos. We began offering dental triage as a parallel service to our vision screenings in November 2003 and established a dental care referral network.
