Since its founding in 1974, Westside Family Health Center has grown from a small clinic where the patient charts fit into one box, to a Federally Qualified Health Center and Patient Centered Medical Home/Health Home with four satellite sites, a mobile medical unit and an operating budget of $5 million. For the past 43 years, WFHC has adhered to its mission to provide "comprehensive, high quality, cost effective health care in an educational and supportive environment that empowers patients to take an assertive role in caring for their well-being through all stages of life.'' As a safety net provider, WFHC's purpose is to address the health needs of anyone who walks through the doors by providing high quality care on a sliding fee scale. WFHC's goals are to improve the patient care experience, improve the health and outcomes of the patient population, and reduce per capita costs of patient care. WFHC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Westside Family Health Center's Federal Tax ID # is 95-2931931.
