Family First Health is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) that is accessible and community-minded. We take a beyond healthy approach that goes outside the confines of the doctor’s office. As an inclusive health care model, we put everyone first. We want happy, healthy patients who can live better lives in better health. We strive to build a healthy community.
Family First Health History
Family First Health was started in 1970 from a movement started by H. Jack Geiger, physician and civil rights activist. By addressing the roots of illness drawn from community concerns, early health centers like Family First Health pioneered an effective method for approaching health care in underserved communities.
Today, there are almost a thousand community health centers in the United States, making health care accessible for more than 11.5 million patients each year.
Family First Health is proud to be one of these centers that provide compassionate and comprehensive health services to people seeking accessible and affordable quality care.
Programs including Healthy York Network, Caring Together and our Nurse-Family Partnerships keep Family First Health at the forefront of answering the needs of our patients and the communities we serve.
This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).
