The Missouri Association of Rural Health Clinics (MARHC) is a not-for-profit corporation founded in 2000 by health professionals committed to providing a forum to exchange information specific to federally-certified Rural Health Clinics.


The purpose of MARHC is:


  • To study, discuss, and exchange professional knowledge, expertise, and ideas with regard to federally certified rural health clinics.

  • To promote high standards for quality patient care.

  • To stimulate interest in continuing education for rural health clinic health care providers.

  • To improve access to quality health care through the establishment of federally certified rural health clinics and through cooperative efforts with other professional health care organizations and individuals.

  • To promote and maintain communication and cooperative relations with other professional health care organizations.




The Missouri Association of Rural Health Clinics (MARHC) board is composed of dedicated individuals who have a strong commitment and understanding of rural health care in Missouri's communities. Members have been chosen by their peers to serve on the MARHC Board of Directors for the 2016-2017 year. To view the members of the MARHC Board of Directors, please click here.





MARHC is soliciting nominations for Board of Directors. The positions are elected each year at the annual conference held in October.


Individuals interested in serving are asked to commit to quarterly board meetings which are held in Jefferson City to serve on various committees for the association.


All individuals are encouraged to get involved with MARHC. The board is a diverse group that represents small independent clinics as well as large corporate clinics. The only requirement to serve on the board is that your clinic is a paid member of the association.
