Family First Health celebrates 45 Years of Putting Community First
York, Pa. (8 June 2015) – Family First Health is thrilled to celebrate a major milestone in 2015 as it marks 45 years of providing health care in York County.
One of the first community health centers in the nation, Family First Health was founded in 1970 in response to the York Charrette, which identified solutions to several programs facing York City. Family First Health proved to be an effective way to meet the comprehensive health care needs of underserved populations.
In 45 years, Family First Health has grown to five locations in York and Adams counties. Its uniquely qualified providers delivered medical, dental and social services to more than 22,000 patients in 2014, furthering its goal of addressing barriers to better health and increasing affordable, accessible health care for those who need it most.
“Family First Health began several decades ago as a response to community need,” said Jenny Englerth, CEO. “We’re proud to carry that mission focus through every day in our work with individuals and families to effect community-wide changes and address the challenges they face in achieving better health.”
Family First Health will be celebrating this milestone anniversary all year, kicking off June 1 by sharing diverse stories of how the community health center puts community first in its program and services every day.
