Our Story

“Our Family Taking Care of Your Family.”  Family Center for Health Care (FCHC) is a group of doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other professionals dedicated to being your medical home.  Our medical providers are able to provide a wide range of health care services by providing complete family practice and obstetrical services.  The group has been providing medical care since its formation in 1994.  From our initial formation until now we have grown to become the largest family practice group in northwest Kansas.  We have done this by making our goal to treat all of our patients as though we are treating our own family members and provide you with the most advanced, extensive, timely, and compassionate care possible.     

We are located at 310 E. College Drive in Colby, Kansas.  You can reach us at (785) 462-6184 or toll free at (800) 453-6751.  Established patients with medical questions can reach a medical provider after hours by calling (785) 443-5171.

FCHC is located on the campus of Citizens Medical Center, Inc (CMCI).  This location provides our patients with access to the best diagnostic, rehabilitation, inpatient services, and specialty care available.  CMCI’s Specialty Clinic provides our patients with access to medical specialists from across the region in a broad range of medical specialties.  You can reach the Specialty Clinic by calling (785) 460-1215. 

Our growth continues into the future as we expand our FCHC complex.  This will enable us to expand existing services and establish new services.
