Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Yakima Neighborhood Health celebrated National Health Center Week with a festival in their parking lot today.

They set up several booths showcasing the different services they provide.

Neighborhood Health is one of many centers around the US that provides affordable healthcare for all its patients including people with very little income.

"There's folks that don't have a medical provider, there's folks that go without healthcare for years and one of the things that's so important is prevention," said Annette Rodriguez with Yakima Neighborhood Health.

Neighborhood Health says centers all over the US help to save 24 million dollars nationally every year.

Locally, neighborhood health has five different locations, stretching from Yakima all the way down to the lower valley.
