Family Health Center

The Family Health Center (FHC), including the Refugee Medical Clinic, provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary health care services along a continuum of care that includes health promotion, disease prevention, urgent care, continuity primary care, and specialty clinics. All FHC patients are either uninsured or publically insured through Medicare or Medicaid. We provide strength-based care that is attentive to the social determinants of health and prioritizes patients’ values. Because we serve a population that is often marginalized, we strive to provide services that are accessible, culturally appropriate, safe, and welcoming for a diverse community of patients. We have two active patient advisory councils--one for Spanish speaking patients and one for English speaking patients--that guide our clinic’s decisions and help us remain aligned with our mission.

The FHC provides the full scope of primary care services for children, adolescents, adults, the elderly, and homebound patients. The FHC is the largest primary care clinic in San Francisco's Community Health Network, with 12,000 uninsured or publicly insured patients served and almost 50,000 patient visits per year. It is not only the home base for our residents' continuity practices, but also includes the following clinics and services:
