Our Mission

Since we opened our first health center in 1971, our mission has remained unchanged…

To provide access to comprehensive primary and preventive medical and dental services to residents of all income levels within our service area in Northeastern Pennsylvania, with special emphasis on the underinsured and underserved.

INTEGRITY. ACCOUNTABILITY. TEAMWORK. COMPASSION. COURTESY… are the foundations upon which all of our interactions take place. Whether we are treating a patient, greeting a visitor, calling a vendor or working with a member of our board or staff, these core values are reflected in everything we do.
