Founded in 1993, Community Health is dedicated to serving the uninsured and underserved in Chicago and surrounding communities. In 2010, Community Health provided more than 25,000 medical, dental, and educational visits for more than 8,000 patients. With our comprehensive patient services and many institutional affiliations, Community Health is a leader among free clinics nationwide.
On September 27th, 2010, Community Health established a satellite site in Chicago’s south side Englewood neighborhood – a community with great need and limited resources. This new resource will allow Community Health to broaden its reach to meet the growing numbers and needs of Chicago’s most vulnerable residents and communities. It will be modeled after Community Health’s West Town facility in both volunteer structure and services offered. The newly renovated first floor health center houses eight exam rooms, a lab, dispensary, and a classroom for health education. The lower level, to be renovated in early 2011, includes four dental treatment stations and a lab.
