To empower people to become informed consumers of and active participants in their own health care.

To promote the opportunity for lay people and professionals to share health care knowledge and skills.

To strengthen the communities that the Center serves.

Description

For almost 40 years, regardless of our patients’ income or insurance status, we’ve provided quality health care to people in and around Baltimore. Today, at ten sites in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County, People’s provides full-service, primary medical care, as well as dental care, substance abuse treatment, HIV & STD prevention and mental health care to many of our region’s poorest residents. 98 percent of our patients live 200 percent below the federal poverty line--most without access to quality healthcare if People’s was not in their community.

As long as there’s a health care crisis in Maryland and in the United States, People’s Community Health Centers will fill the gaps. Our work helps keep routine illnesses from becoming emergency cases. It keeps costs down for health care consumers and people with private insurance.
