The Rural Health Network of Monroe County, Florida, Inc., is a community-based, non-for-profit organization that operates a comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality health care center in the Lower Keys. In addition to providing primary health care, it operates a dental clinic and integrates access to pharmacy, mental health and substance abuse services.
The Rural Health Network offers care to all members of the community regardless of their ability to pay. That is fees are charged on a sliding scale based on the patients’ ability to pay for care – with no fees for the neediest in community and affordable payments for others. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and most health insurance.
To provide these services, the Rural Health Network is supported by generous grants from the Health Resources & Services Administration (known as HRSA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
