From humble beginnings in a converted trailer to the current state-of-the-art $10 million facility on the same plot of land at the corner of Paterson and Burdick Streets, FHC has become the county’s only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). FHC has also been accredited as a community-based health center by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for over a decade.

What began as a group of dedicated community advocates, volunteer doctors, nurses and assistants is now, more than 53 years later, one of Michigan’s most highly recognized FQHCs. Our team offers comprehensive health services at three locations, with an additional set of mobile health and dental units. Our staff administers approximately 165,000 patient visits annually as part of our commitment to serve the community members of Kalamazoo.
