About Erie

Erie Family Health Center delivers high-quality, culturally-sensitive, bilingual health care to more than 55,000 medical patients and 9,200 dental patients. Our community-based health care centers are portals to high-quality care – and a higher quality of life – regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Since 1957, when the Erie Family Health Center was first established as a volunteer clinic by doctors from Northwestern Memorial Hospital, it has been our mission to consider health care a right, not a privilege. Today, Erie serves patients from 13 sites, including seven large primary care facilities (four with integrated, on-site dental care), five school-based health centers and the only freestanding comprehensive teen health provider in the Chicagoland area.
