For more than four decades, Family Health Centers of San Diego’s (FHCSD) mission has been to provide affordable, high-quality health care and support services to all people, with a special commitment to the uninsured, low-income and medically underserved. Annually, our staff provides care to more than 170,000 unique patients—a third of our region’s low-income patients—through more than 730,000 encounters.
FHCSD offers a wide range of health care services throughout the region, including primary care clinics, six dental clinics, a teen health center, four behavioral health facilities, an outpatient substance abuse treatment program, radiology, vision and physical therapy departments, three mobile medical units and a pharmacy.
The breadth of our clinic locations, services and programs has grown over the last four decades, making us the largest community clinic provider of health care to the uninsured in the county and one of the top 10 largest community clinic organizations in the nation. We are also the largest health care safety-net provider, largest school-based health care provider and largest comprehensive HIV/AIDS services provider in the San Diego region.
