Our Mission

Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center (EPFMC) is a quality-focused nonprofit community health center dedicated to improving the physical, social, and emotional well-being of people in the communities we serve, regardless of income.


Founded in 1920, Eisner Health is a quality-focused, federally qualified non-profit and integrated community health center system dedicated to improving the physical, social and emotional well-being of people in the communities we serve, regardless of income, immigration status and insurance coverage.  It has been a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) system since late 2004 and is one of the largest providers of accessible, free, or low-cost health and social services including comprehensive and high-quality medical, dental, nurse midwifery, and OB/GYN services, optometry, prenatal education, pharmacy and behavioral health care, as well as case management and referral services.
