Since 1957, when the Erie Family Health Center was first established as a volunteer clinic by doctors from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, it has been Erie’s mission to ensure all Chicagoans have access to high quality, culturally sensitive, bilingual health care services — regardless of their ability to pay. Today, Erie serves about 30,000 patients annually at nine sites, including three school-based health centers, a teen health center and two dental health centers.
