Please call ahead and tell the attendant that you are coming in for Coronavirus and they will transfer you to a health professional.

We Serve You

Near North Health welcomes everyone. We are a sensitive, culturally competent, and patient-centered community health center that empowers individuals through education, disease prevention, and promoting healthy behaviors, regardless of one’s inability to pay. 

Near North Health's Mission

The Mission of Near North Health  (NNH) is to provide access to high quality health care to improve the health, well-being, and safety of the diverse populations and communities we serve.

Communities We Serve

Our communities are located in federally designated Health Professional and/or Health Services Shortage Areas for Primary Care, Mental Health, and/or Dental Services. All communities are home to African-American, Hispanic, and other racial/ethnic groups who suffer from health disparities such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma, HIV, depression, tobacco use, infant mortality, and low birth rate.


Everyone is welcome at Near North Health. Immigration status will never impact your care.


Welcome Veterans! Near North Health is excited to offer healthcare services to our veterans through the Veterans Choice Program. Veterans can now select Near North Health as their provider of choice for all healthcare needs. Veterans, thank you for taking care of us, now let Near North Health take care of you!


Pacific Garden Mission Near North Health has taken to the streets and visited the homeless at Chicago's Pacific Garden Mission shelter in the downtown South Loop neighborhood. Every week, Near North Health provides transportation for dozens of residents to visit the health centers and receive healthcare services.  Near North Health's homeless outreach  highlights just one of the few ways that Near North Health contributes to the community.
