Shasta Community Health Center is a nonprofit primary health care system based in Redding, serving Shasta and surrounding counties since 1988. In 1999 the former Citizens Utilities building was purchased and renovated. The McConnell Foundation contributed more than $2 million to this effort. The mission of the Center is to provide comprehensive, high-quality, efficient health care services delivered in a holistic, caring, and compassionate manner. The Center also supports the training of health professionals who have a strong interest in caring for the disadvantaged.
