To ensure that all members of the community have access to quality, comprehensive, patient-centered health care.
To become the preferred medical home for at least 70,000 under served patients in Kalamazoo County.
FHC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) serving the citizens of Kalamazoo County in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
We are a community-based health center charged with providing excellent, quality health care to some 70,000 historically underserved patients. We take our mission seriously and work diligently to ensure that all people who enter our facilities are treated with dignity, respect & a welcoming spirit. Our goal is to create a “medical home” for families, children & adults who seek answers to their healthcare needs.
We understand that our patients are often struggling with a myriad of complex social issues, and our medical providers partner with our patients to provide many ancillary services not often seen in traditional private practice. We employ a multi-dimensional approach to healthcare and understand that a person’s physical health is often linked to a person’s emotional, dental, and social well-being. Our staff is here to help you!
In 2011, the FHC was awarded the largest Affordable Care Act grant for Federally Qualified Health Centers in the State of Michigan ($9.3m). We were able to renovate and expand our flagship location on Paterson Street in Kalamazoo’s Northside neighborhood – tripling the number of exam rooms and increasing capacity for an additional 20,000 patients in need of healthcare.
