About PCHS

Who We Are

Peninsula Community Health Services (PCHS) is a community based nonprofit organization that offers quality, affordable care for children and adults in the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula areas. Our services include primary medical care, dental care, behavioral health counseling, pharmacy services, referrals to specialty providers, and health education and promotion activities.

Our Mission

The PCHS mission is to provide accessible, affordable, compassionate, quality health care services for our communities. Our patients come from all walks of life. PCHS services are available to our patients without regard for ability to pay.

How You Can Get Service

We accept DSHS/medical coupons, Healthy Options, Basic Health, Medicare, TriCare and other private insurance reimbursements. Someone who is uninsured or underinsured qualifies for a sliding fee scale, where someone is charged for services based on income and insurance coverage. To learn more, reference our Patient Guide.

Our Community

We’re dedicated to tailoring our services to our community, and constantly look for ways to improve our organization to better serve the residents of the Kitsap County area. The majority of our Board of Director members are patients of PCHS. You can become a board member, too, by filling out our application.
