Community Health Centers definition: Facilities which administer the delivery of health care services to people living in a community or neighborhood.
Community Health Center definition: Community Health Centers (CHCs) are private, non-profit organizations that directly or indirectly (through contracts and cooperative agreements) provide primary health services and related services to residents of a defined geographic area that is medically undeserved. Community health centers have a three-fold mission. First, CHCs aim to improve access to care for low income, underserved, vulnerable populations. They are required to be located in medically-underserved rural and urban areas, and within those communities, they serve those with limited access to more mainstream health care. Second, CHCs provide a fully comprehensive range of primary care services, including "enabling" or support services. Third, they involve the community in both the management and governance of the center.

These clinics are often referred to as "acute pain services". (From Br Med Bull 1991 Jul;47(3):762-85)

Cancer Center definition: Facilities designated Cancer Centers generally conduct a combination of basic, population sciences, and clinical research, and are encouraged to stimulate collaborative research involving more than one field of study. Several of these centers conduct only laboratory research and do not provide patient care. The NCI-designated Cancer Centers that do provide patient care are also expected to conduct early-phase, innovative clinical trials and to participate in the NCI Cooperative Group Program.

Clinic/Center definition: A facility or distinct part of one used for the diagnosis and treatment of outpatients. "Clinic/center" is irregularly defined, either including or excluding physician's offices and allied health professionals, sometimes being limited to organizations serving specialized treatment requirements or distinct patient/client groups (e.g., radiology, poor, public health).Source: Rhea, Ott, and Shafritz, The Facts On File Dictionary of Health Care Management, New York: Facts On File Publications, 1988; Lexikon: Dictionary of Health Care Terms, Organizations and Acronyms for the Era of Reform, The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois: 1994, p. 185

Clinical Center definition: The research hospital for the NIH, the Federal Government's principal agency for biomedical research. The NIH Clinical Center is actually made up of two centers: the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center and the Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center. The Clinical Center as a whole promotes translational research, that is, the transformation of scientific laboratory research into applications that benefit patient health and medical care. At the Center, patient care units are in close proximity to cutting-edge technologies and laboratories doing related research. This "bench-to-bedside" approach facilitates interaction and collaboration among clinicians and researchers. The Clinical Center supports clinical trials conducted by the 27 Institutes and Centers of the NIH, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
