LIHC’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve while providing exceptional and compassionate care.
The vision we have for Lassen Indian Health Center is to be chosen by our staff, our providers and our community as the best place to work, the best place to practice and the best place to receive comprehensive care.
At Lassen Indian Health Center, we pride ourselves in using evidence-based practices, ensuring our patients the highest quality health and dental care. We are dedicated to treating our patients with dignity, care and compassion.
The Susanville Indian Rancheria is a federally recognized Indian Tribe that was established in 1923 for the benefit of homeless California Indians in Lassen County. There are four distinct tribes associated with the Susanville Indian Rancheria: Maidu, Paiute, Pit River, and Washoe.
On January 1, 2012, the Susanville Indian Rancheria compacted with the United States of America to support Tribal Self-Governance for the conduct and delivery of Health Services.
Lassen Indian Health Center and its Health Board will strive to encourage and support the exercise of tribal self-governance of its individual members and to oversee the operation of the Health Center’s responsibilities of providing health care services for the spiritual, traditional, and cultural well-being of its patients.
Our mission is quality, integrated medical, dental, and behavioral health care and related services to the Alaska Native/American Indians and residents of Lassen County.
