About Erie Family Health Centers
Erie Family Health delivers high quality care to over 73,000 medical patients and 12,500 dental patients in the language of their choice and with respect for their cultural values and beliefs. Nearly all of our providers are bilingual in English and Spanish. Our community-based health centers are portals to high-quality care—and a higher quality of life—regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. 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.
