For almost 50 years, Neighborcare Health has provided a health care home for our most vulnerable neighbors.
A home is where the heart is, a place that's welcoming, supportive, provides peace of mind. At Neighborcare Health, we believe everyone deserves and needs a place to call their health care home, regardless of income or insurance status. A health care home is where a team of medical, denta...l and mental health professionals work in collaboration with each patient to develop a personal health improvement plan. It's a place where we encourage long-term relationships with patients, and care for them from birth through the end of their life. No matter which clinic patients visit at Neighborcare Health, we want them all to feel at home.
We are the largest provider of primary medical, dental and behavioral health care services in the Seattle area focusing on low-income and uninsured families and individuals, seniors on fixed incomes, immigrants, and the homeless. Each year we care for about 65,000 patients at our 28 non-profit medical, dental and school-based clinics. We ask everyone to pay what they can, but no one is turned away due to inability to pay. With the help of our partners and donors, we work to make our city a healthier and safer place for everyone.
We treat the whole person, offering medical and dental care, social work and counseling, OB and midwifery, health education and nutrition services. We meet our patients where they are, geographically, culturally, physically and emotionally. Our clinics are located in neighborhoods where health disparities are the greatest, and our care teams, who speak over 40 languages and dialects, are as diverse as our patients.
