HISTORY

Serving Kansas City’s
underserved
for over 30 years!

Since 1989, Family Health Care (FHC), a non-profit safety net clinic, has provided health services on a sliding scale for those who do not have insurance. We began by assessing the most pressing health concerns in the community and have focused on caring for those who have the least options – people with HIV and serious illnesses, pregnant women and other needy populations. FHC is located in the Eastern side of Wyandotte County and the Turner area because of the concentration of poverty and health needs in this area.

Proud To Be Your Local Community Health Center

FHC has provided health services and supportive care for vulnerable people in our community for more than thirty years.
In 2017, FHC was awarded status as an FQHC Look-alike Health Center after meeting the rigorous requirements for the designation. Many of our patients have few other resources. Wyandotte County has the lowest per capita income in the region and the highest proportion of uninsured low income individuals and families. In order to help alleviate these disparities, FHC offers family oriented medical services and social services including obstetrics, pediatrics, adolescent and adult medicine, geriatrics, palliative medicine, and minor emergency care to patients with or without insurance. On site laboratory, x-ray facilities, hearing, vision and pulmonary testing, and colposcopic equipment is utilized. Individual and family counseling and social services assessments and referrals are available. FHC also collaborates with KU Department of Family Medicine and Nurse-Midwifery Program to provide health care (including prenatal care and deliveries) for mothers and their newborns.
