Brief History

Valley Healthcare System formerly known as Community Health Center of South
Columbus opened its doors August 1994. This name change is reflective of the growth
in our size and the services that we provide to the community. We began as a small
service within the Baker Village community of the South Columbus area. Today, we
provide medical, dental, out-reach services, behavioral health and pharmacy services to
residents from the Chattahoochee Valley region and beyond.
