About Brevard Health Alliance
The Brevard Health Alliance, Inc. is Brevard County's only Federally Qualified Health Center. This organization provides extensive primary health care services to Brevard County residents regardless of their ability to pay for those services. By offering services on a sliding fee scale, BHA has provided primary care service, limited dental services, diagnostic services, case management services, medication assistance, and speciality referrals to Brevard County's economically disadvantaged residents since March of 2005. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, BHA is an FTCA Deemed Facility.
Our objective is to provide a primary health care home for our patients. Like your family physician, our goal is to provide not just urgent care, but preventive care and health care related education to our patients. Brevard Health Alliance is a private, not for profit organization with a community board of directors. More than one-half of our board members are patients of our clinics. We currently operate a pediatric clinic and adult clinic in Palm Bay, Malabar and Rockledge, an adult clinic in Melbourne, and one in Titusville. We have recently opened our newest and largest Sarno location which includes all specialites (pediatric, adult and behavioral health).
Our Mobile Health Units provide services to citizens at various soup kitchens, transitional housing locations and church locations throughout Brevard County such as the Daily Bread, Central Brevard Sharing Center, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, St. Vincent DePaul Society at Church of our Savior, and local community hospitals. The goal of Brevard Health Alliance Mobile Health Units is to provide professional medical care to Brevard's residents 'where they are'; on the streets, in shelters, at soup kitchens and at drop-in centers. We currently provide services to approximately 2,000 Brevard County citizens that present as homeless.
The Brevard Health Alliance provides primary medical care with board certified family practice and internal medicine physicians and advanced practice nurse practitioners. This care includes health maintenance such as well child check ups, well woman care and physicals. BHA also provides chronic disease management for things such as hypertension and diabetes.
