For more than 100 years, Infant Welfare Society of Chicago (IWS) has pioneered innovative healthcare practices in treating Chicago’s most vulnerable populations. It began as a series of “milk stations” to provide nutritional support to combat high rates of infant mortality. In 1924, it incorporated child development and behavioral health counseling, and since 1970, it has provided pediatric dentis...try services. Orthodontic care was introduced in 1991, pediatric optometry in 1995, and speech, occupational and vision therapies began in 2015. In 2005, IWS opened the doors of the Angel Harvey Family Health Center in a beautiful 42,000 square foot LEED Silver certified building. In doing so, we created a healthcare home where quality care is provided to everyone who enters our center.
What we do:
The Angel Harvey Family Health Center is a full-service community-based clinic that offers a broad spectrum of medical, dental, optometry, behavioral health and child development services under one roof. This "one-stop-shop" ensures barrier-free access and provides a multi-service healthcare home for children and families in Chicago and the surrounding areas.
