Our Programs and Services Support Diversity

HCC Network and its clinics in Buckner, Carrollton, Concordia, Lexington, and Waverly continue to put processes and practices in place that support cultural diversity and competency. We define cultural competency as the capacity for our organization to respond to the unique needs of populations whose cultures are different from that which might be referred to as dominant or mainstream.

Our ongoing efforts include a long-term developmental process that moves beyond cultural awareness and sensitivity. Although this knowledge is important and crucial to our overall mission, we also believe in ongoing engagement that expands critical thinking about the intricacies of every culture we serve — this includes everything from historical oppression to using culturally appropriate language and images.

Additionally, as an organization, we commit to cultural inclusion, respect and equality — with an emphasis on making health information and resources equally accessible to everyone we serve.

HCC adheres to Health and Human Services’ (HHS) National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (the National CLAS Standard).


Our community-based programs include case management, counseling and assessment, health education, transportation, translation services, enrollment assistance, health and social care advocacy initiatives, access to primary care, and health IT.
HCC and its Community Health Centers serve all patients regardless of ability to pay. Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income. Schedule a visit: 660.259.2440.
After more than a decade and nearly 50 new employees later, it’s safe to say that the Lexington, MO-based HCC Network is a major player in Lafayette County and in rural health care in this region.
The focus of HCC is to develop and implement programs that are responsive to documented health needs of county residents, with specific health status indicators as benchmarks of progress.
