About

NNHSC

Near North Health Service Corporation (NNHSC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), is one of the largest providers of community-based primary health care in Chicago. We provide medical services, social services, and nutrition education to medically indigent and uninsured individuals and families. Our philosophy reflects an approach that anticipates community needs and plans for expansions that are developed in accordance to these needs. Throughout our evolution, not only have our methods held up under the intense new demands of ever-changing communities, but also we have come through with shining results. We are proud to report that our successes now serve as a national model for excellence in community-based primary health care.

 

Near North Health Service Corporation targets low-income communities on the north, west, and south sides of Chicago. While disparate, NNHSC service areas are characterized by large concentrations of Chicago Housing Authority high rise apartments, abandoned residential buildings, blighted commercial properties, and an utter absence of basic services and health care resources.  To meet the needs of these communities, we offer a full array of comprehensive primary care clinical services, nutrition education, and social support programs through our nine comprehensive health centers and two supplemental nutrition sites.

Near North Health Service Corporation receives funding from the Department of Health and Human Services and has Federal Public health Service (PHS) deemed status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.
