About the Organization
Erie Family Health Center delivers high-quality, culturally-sensitive, bilingual health care to more than 53,000 medical patients and 9,500 dental patients. Our community-based health care centers are portals to high-quality care and a higher quality of life regardless of a patients ability to pay. Since 1957, when the Erie Family Health Center was first established as a volunteer clinic by doctors from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, it has been our mission to consider health care a right, not a privilege. Today, Erie serves patients from 13 sites, including seven large primary care facilities (four with integrated, on-site dental care), five school-based health centers and the only freestanding comprehensive teen health provider in Chicagoland.
At Erie Family Health Center, we believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Our mission is to provide accessible, affordable and high quality health care for those in need.
