Frontera Healthcare Network is the result of a multiple county effort to preserve access to quality healthcare in each of the communities of Eden, Menard, Mason, Brady & Junction. The organization was formed in 2005 and contributions from the Eden Economic Development Corp, Spirit of Eden fund and the Office of Rural Community Affairs were combined to pay for organizational and grant writing fees. The application was submitted in 2006 for a section 330 grant from Health and Human Services to help with the growing need to provide care to the uninsured and medically underserved. Frontera is a private non-profit organization with nine Board of Directors, three representing each county served, that a majority receive their medical care at one of the clinics.
