The Institute for Family Health is a mission-driven health organization with a rich history and expert leadership. Since 1983, the Institute has grown from a small nonprofit with four staff members to one of the largest community health centers in New York State, serving over 80,000 patients annually at 26 locations. The Institute is committed to high-quality, affordable health care for all and offers primary, mental health and dental care as well as social work and other services to patients of all ages. All patients are accepted regardless of their ability to pay. The Institute is committed to improving the healthcare system, particularly for individuals and communities who historically have had limited access to care. The Institute engages in research to improve health care services, and participates in policy development at the local, state and national levels.
As a federally qualified health center (FQHC) network, the Institute meets national standards for affordable, accessible, comprehensive health care services, is accredited by the Joint Commission, and is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Level 3 patient-centered medical home (the highest recognition available). In addition to operating health centers, the Institute uses its expertise and resources to address racial and ethnic disparities in health, to advance the use of health information technology, and to find innovative ways to improve care for diabetes, depression, women’s health, HIV and other priorities of the communities served. The Institute trains students and professionals at all levels.
