The centers are comprehensive, multi-specialty primary care facilities offering affordable, accessible, high-quality medical and dental care. Both centers have board-certified or board-eligible professional providers including pediatricians, internal medicine specialists, nurse practitioners, and dentists.

The Health Centers also provide cutting-edge disease management and wellness promotion services to our patients. These services are an integral part of our approach to providing high-quality clinical care. They are an essential part of our interactions with the communities and neighborhoods that surround the Southside and Dodson Avenue locations.

Access to emergency care hospitalization or other specialized services is provided through our affiliation with the Erlanger Health System. We provide health care regardless of the patient's ability to pay.
