Family Health Centers, Inc. (FHC) is a non-profit
corporation, established by the Louisville-Jefferson County Board of Health in
1976, to assure that residents of the Louisville Metro area have access to high
quality primary and preventive health services, regardless of ability-to-pay.
Services are provided to more than 43,000 patients annually, through Seven
Family Health Centers sites.
FHC provides comprehensive primary and preventive health
services including: physician, nurse practitioner, dental, nurse, lab, x-ray,
pharmacy, obstetrics, child and adult medicine as well as specialty and
inpatient referral and follow-up. The medical staff includes more than 40
physicians and nurse practitioners who specialize in Family Medicine, Internal

FHC bills Passport, Medicaid and Medicare as well as
private insurance for patients with coverage. Patients who are not covered
by public or private insurance will be charged on a
Sliding Fee Scale which takes into account the family’s size and
FHC relies on funding from the federal Community Health
Centers and Health Care for the Homeless programs and from Louisville Metro
government to help cover the cost of services provided to the uninsured.

National Association of Community Health Centers, the
Kentucky Primary Care Association and the Louisville Primary Care

Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
