Welcome to Altura Centers for Health

Altura Centers for Health formerly (TCHC) has been providing medical and dental care to the community since 1995. Historically the clinic was formerly owned and operated by Tulare Local Health Care District. It was purchased from Tulare District Hospital (TDH) in July 1998. Altura first became a Federal Qualified Look A-Like Clinic in 1997 and in 2000 became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), and is an FTCA deemed facility. In addition, the clinic is a 501 (C) 3 Non-profit Organization. Altura is governed by a committed Volunteer Community Board of Directors which meet once a month and serve on several committees. The majority of the Board of Directors are patients of Altura. Hence, it is a clinic governed by its patients as well as community. The majority of our providers are contracted with the clinic. This arrangement has enabled us to have many specialists available to our patients. It has resulted in continuity of providers (majority are Board Certified) allowing the patient and provider to build a long lasting relationship. Our Primary Care Physicians (PCPs), including Dentists are on-call 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
