Vision Our vision is to be a national leader in community-based health care by advancing innovative service models and patient-centered best practices. Who We Are Heartland Health Centers is a federally qualified health center with 18 locations serving Chicago’s north side and nearby suburbs. In 2020, we provided 27,000 patients with a medical home where we offer affordable and comprehensive primary care, oral health care, and mental health care services. As a medical home, HHC ensures comprehensive, affordable, quality, safe, and coordinated health care that is culturally competent and orientated to addressing all the health care needs of each patient. What is an FQHC? A Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) must serve an underserved area or population, offer a sliding fee scale, provide comprehensive services, have an ongoing quality assurance program, and have a governing board of directors. Serving more than 18 million patients nationally, FQHC’s receives federal funding and enhanced reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid. We’re open to the entire community—the uninsured as well as those who have Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance. We offer medication discounts and free interpretation services in over 35 languages.
