Abstract The Delta Health Center was established in the mid-1960s, in the rural, all-African American town of Mound Bayou, Bolivar County, Miss., and served Bolivar, Coahoma, Sunflower, and Washington counties, where poverty was widespread. The Center, which was federally funded through Tufts University and later through the State University of New York at Stony Brook, was one of the first community health centers in the United States. The comprehensive community health center model aimed at building upon traditional health services by addressing the underlying causes of illness, including economic, environmental, and social factors. Originally, Jack Geiger served as project director and John Hatch as director of community health action. The collection contains business files documenting the establishment and operations of the Delta Health Center, including the efforts of John Hatch, Jack Geiger, and others to obtain and maintain federal funding for the Center from the Office of Economic Opportunity; the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare; and the Department of Health and Human Services. Major topics include health care for minorities and impoverished communities, social medicine, nutrition, environmental health, and medical education and training. Materials document the economic, social, and health conditions of the residents of the Mississippi Delta, especially the African American community in northern Bolivar County; John Hatch and L. C. Dorsey's efforts with the North Bolivar County Cooperative Farm and Cannery; the role of the North Bolivar County Health and Civic Improvement Council; and the Delta Health Center's relationship with other health facilities, medical schools, and outreach programs, including the Mound Bayou Community Hospital (with which it merged in 1972), Meharry Medical College, the Delta Ministry, and the Columbia Point Health Center (now the Geiger-Gibson Community Health Center), and others. Included are administrative records, correspondence, financial materials, grant proposals, legal materials, personnel files, reports, studies, education and training materials, publicity materials, photographs, printed matter, and other items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

The Delta Health Center (previously called the Tufts-Delta Health Center, the Delta Community Health Center, and the Mound Bayou Community Hospital and Delta Health Center) was started in the rural, all-African American town of Mound Bayou, Bolivar County, Miss., and served Bolivar, Coahoma, Sunflower, and Washington counties, where poverty is widespread. The center, which was federally funded through Tufts University and later through the State University of New York at Stony Brook, was one of the first community health centers in the United States. The comprehensive community or neighborhood health center model aimed at building upon traditional health services by addressing the underlying causes of illness, including economic, environmental, and social factors. The Delta Health Center was largely supported by grants from federal programs, particularly those administered through the Office of Economic Opportunity, the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Funding for the center was initially secured in 1965 from the Office of Economic Opportunity by two Tufts University physicians, Jack Geiger and Count Gibson. As a founding member of the Medical Committee for Human Rights, Geiger had served as field coordinator and medical director for several civil rights efforts in the south, with which Gibson was also involved, including Mississippi Freedom Summer in 1964 and the Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights marches in 1965. While providing medical care for civil rights workers, Geiger was also exposed to the extreme poverty and ill health that plagued local residents in the rural South. Geiger was reminded of his prior experience at community health centers in rural Natal, South Africa, where he studied social medicine with Sidney and Emily Kark as a medical student in the late 1950s. He realized that bringing the community health model to the United States could better serve extremely impoverished communities, like those in Mississippi and elsewhere. Soon after, Geiger, working with Tufts University, approached Sandy Kravitz and Sargent Shriver of the newly formed Office of Economic Opportunity with his proposal to start such a center, and was able to secure enough funding to go ahead with the project. The original grant also provided for a similar community health center in the Columbia Point housing project in Boston, Mass. (now called the Geiger-Gibson Community Health Center). The two centers, which were the first community health centers in the United States, were a part of the Tufts Comprehensive Community Health Action Program, aimed at intervening in the cycle of extreme poverty, ill health, unemployment, and illiteracy through comprehensive health services. Jack Geiger served as the project director, and Dr. John Hatch, also of Tufts University, served as the director of community health action. Clinical work at the Delta Health Center began in November 1967. Initially, patients were served in a converted church parsonage. In 1968, the center moved into a new facility, a renovation of an unfinished structure that was originally built to serve as the new location for J. P. Campbell College of Jackson, Miss.

In addition to providing standard health services, the Delta Health Center provided a number of other services aimed at remedying the poor social, economic, and environmental conditions that were the cause of many health problems in their service area. Delta Health Center staff dug water wells and installed pumps, built privies, dug drainage ditches, and repaired and provided screens for homes. The North Bolivar County Farm Cooperative was also established, headed by John Hatch and L. C. Dorsey, in order to provide food and economic stability for the local community. The cooperative later included a cannery, aimed at selling canned green beans, black-eyed peas, and other southern staples or "soul food" to southern African Americans who had migrated to northern cities. The Afro-American Bookstore was also started under the cooperative. Educational activities at the Delta Health Center included training local residents as community health assistants, conducting descriptive and analytic research, hosting summer internship programs for visiting medical students, and hosting the Systematic Training and Redevelopment (STAR) Program. There were also transportation, nutrition, and supplemental food programs.

The North Bolivar County Health and Civic Improvement Council served as the governing body for the Delta Heath Center. Comprised of ten local health associations, the Health Council was established in 1968 to ensure that local residents were directly involved the health center and in efforts to raise health standards; to improve employment standards, housing conditions, economic standards; and to engage in other community development activities.

The Office of Economic Opportunity demanded a merger in 1971 between the Delta Health Center and the Mound Bayou Community Hospital, which had been formed in the late 1960s from the failing Taborian and Sara Brown Memorial Hospitals. Despite resistance by Delta Health Center directors, the two entities merged in 1972 to form the Delta Community Hospital and Health Center, Inc. A separate board of directors was formed as a part of the merger, which replaced the North Bolivar County Health and Civic Improvement Council as the governing body.
