Since 1982, East Liberty Family Health Care Center has provided high-quality, comprehensive, whole-person health care to all patients, including those who are underinsured, uninsured, and underserved.
From our beginning, the Center has grown substantially, from 1,000 patient visits in a three-room clinic in the basement of Eastminster Presbyterian Church in its first year, to more than 39,000 patient visits in 2016. We are a full-service health care center with medical offices in three locations: East Liberty, the Hill District, and Lincoln-Lemington.
All of our practitioners are board-certified, and make a long-term commitment to the Center. We are a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and maintain high-quality standards that are required with that designation. We serve patients of all ages including providing prenatal care for pregnant women. We offer a sliding-fee scale for patients who have no insurance based on income and family size, and translation services for patients who are best served in a language other than English.
