about fhcsd

For nearly 50 years, Family Health Centers of San Diego’s (FHCSD) mission has been to provide affordable, high-quality health care and support services to all people, with a special commitment to the uninsured, low-income and medically underserved. Annually, our staff provides care to more than 210,000 unique patients—a third of our region’s low-income patients—through more than 935,000 encounters.

FHCSD offers a wide range of health care services throughout the region, including 23 primary care clinics, eight dental clinics, eight behavioral health facilities, an outpatient substance abuse treatment program, vision and physical therapy departments, three mobile medical units and a pharmacy.

The breadth of our clinic locations, services and programs has grown over the last four decades, making us the largest community clinic provider of health care to the uninsured in the county and one of the top 10 largest community clinic organizations in the nation. We are also the largest health care safety-net provider, largest school-based health care provider and largest comprehensive HIV/AIDS services provider in the San Diego region.

Our Mission

Family Health Centers of San Diego is dedicated to providing caring, affordable, high quality healthcare and supportive services to everyone, with a special commitment to uninsured, low income and medically underserved persons.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) is an accredited Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the Joint Commission and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), organizations dedicated to enhancing health care quality and safety.

At a PCMH, patients receive quality care through a direct and long-term relationship with their chosen provider and health care team. This team is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values, ensuring all clinical decisions are guided by these principles. Patients, and their families, also receive support to become engaged in healthy behaviors.

Everyone at FHCSD—from clinicians to receptionists—plays a role in creating a PCMH that supports whole-person care and improves access, self-care and care coordination within and outside FHCSD.
