Mission: The mission of family health centers of baltimore is to provide quality and affordable primary health services to the community.
Programs: The organization provides the broadest range of primary care services at the lowest cost to consumers. To assure access and convenience for consumers, a community based one-stop shop is the model of care delivery that characterizes our approach. Primary care services include pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine, diabetes education, and nutrition counseling. Ob/gyn, dental services, podiatry, pharmacy and mental health services are provided on-site. An addictions service staff consisting of an addictions psychiatrist, a medical doctor, certified addictions counselors, and an outreach worker, provides outpatient detoxification services. This program makes it possible for uninsured and low income working people to become drug free, and still maintain their jobs. For non-english speaking patients, translation services are available from the at&t language line. The fhcb philosophy promotes inclusiveness and community economic revitalization. The facilities are frequently used to hold community open forums and community organizational meetings. Internal and external assessments of the changing needs of the patients we serve and the community are conducted annually as a part of strategic planning to assure that customer service and the care we provide are of the highest quality, attuned to community needs, and that fees match ability to pay. These services are provided at four facilities strategically located around the baltimore metropolitan area to better serve the community. Facilites are located in cherry hill, brooklyn, n. Calvert street, and st. Paul street. During the fiscal year the organization provided primary care services to over 10,500 children and 7,800 adults.
