For more than 45 years, Rural Health Services (RHS) has provided a wide array of primary and preventive healthcare services to the population of Aiken County and surrounding areas.

RHS is a private, non-profit, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). RHS offers culturally-competent, comprehensive primary, preventive, and supplemental healthcare services to all people, regardless of ability to pay, through its main facility in Aiken and satellite facilities in Clearwater and South Aiken.


On behalf of the Board of Directors, Executive Team, providers, and staff, I would like to thank the Aiken County community for allowing Rural Health Services to be your Primary Care Medical Home during the past year.

Our mission to provide accessible, quality, comprehensive primary healthcare services in a dignified and culturally-competent manner would not be possible without the incredible support from our loyal patients and community partners.

I am incredibly proud to call this community our home and you, our family. I look forward to another fantastic year of compassion, quality, and caring.
