The Erie Promise
To deliver quality health care with compassion and respect.
To serve our patients in an environment that is warm, welcoming and comfortable.
To promote wellness through health education and preventive care, so that our patients can lead healthier, happier lives.
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 that all Chicagoans have access to high quality, culturally sensitive, bilingual health care services — regardless of their ability to pay. Today, Erie serves more than 40,000 patients annually at thirteen sites, including five large primary health centers, five school-based health centers, a teen health center and two oral health centers.
At Erie Family Health Center, we believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Our mission is to provide accessible, affordable and high quality health care for those in need.
