Our Impact

Our History

Challis Idaho is nestled in the heart of The Frank Church—River of No Return Wilderness Area, the largest wilderness area in the continental United States.  Before the 1940’s Challis did not have local medical services and until the 1970’s medical care was sporadic.  In 1976 North Custer Clinic was established with funds donated by the Marmont and Steele Reese Foundations.  In 1997 the clinic was renamed Challis Area Health Center (CAHC) and became a Rural Health Clinic, and with hard work and determination CAHC became a Federally Qualified Community Health Center in 2015.

Now, the clinic has expanded services to include behavioral health and pharmacy access, provides care using state of the art equipment, and a dedicated staff that provides comprehensive health care.  We pride ourselves on being able to offer the communities of Custer County care with a personal touch.
