Family Health Center
There are more than 1.8 million uninsured men, women and children in Illinois, and more than 1.3 million in the Chicago metropolitan area. The uninsured typically receive about half the medical care of those with insurance, and so tend to become sicker than those with coverage. The Mercy Family Health Center plays an important role in filling the gap for the uninsured, underserved and other Chicagoans in need by providing quality health services to all—regardless of ability to pay.

Mercy Hospital was founded in 1852 with the mission of providing care for Chicago’s underserved populations. The Mercy Family Health Center continues that legacy of caring by offering wellness care for adults, infants and children. Together, the highly trained physicians, clinicians and staff of the Mercy Family Health Center ensure that all Chicagoans have access to comprehensive, compassionate and quality healthcare.

Services for Adults and Children
The Mercy Family Health Center provides complete primary care for adults, as well as prenatal care, midwifery services and specialized senior care. Patients also have access to high-level specialty care, including:
• cardiology

The Mercy Family Health Center also offers comprehensive pediatric care for children and adolescents. Children can obtain all necessary vaccinations and school physicals at the Family Health Center.

Special Services for Seniors
The Family Health Center Patient Relations program provides a wide array of services, including home visits, to patients age 63 years or older. To learn more about our senior services, call 312.567.5508.

Special Services for Women
Mercy is proud to be a lead agency for the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP), which offers free breast and cervical cancer screening and treatment to uninsured Illinois women.

Younger women may also be eligible in some cases.
