Neighbor Care Health is 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 they care for about 65,000 patients at their 28 non-profit medical, dental and school-based clinics. They ask everyone to pay what they can, but no one is turned away due to inability to pay. With the help of their partners and donors, they work to make their city a healthier and safer place for everyone.
They treat the whole person, offering medical and dental care, social work and counseling, OB and midwifery, health education and nutrition services. They meet their patients where they are, geographically, culturally, physically and emotionally. Their clinics are located in neighborhoods where health disparities are the greatest, and their care teams, who speak over 40 languages and dialects, are as diverse as their patients.
The mission of Neighborcare Health is to provide comprehensive health care to families and individuals who have difficulty accessing care; respond with sensitivity to the needs of their culturally diverse patients; and advocate and work with others to improve the overall health status of the communities they serve.
