The PHMC health network offers affordable, high-quality, patient-centered health services for communities throughout the Philadelphia area. The network has a simple mission: to provide compre-hensive primary health care, family planning, disease management, nutritional counseling, behavioral health, social services and more to men, women and children. Our network provides area residents with a diverse selection of services that help to close the gap created by disparities in access to health care. And as the administrator of Philadelphia's Healthcare for the Homeless program, we are committed to providing the best care possible for our homeless patients.

PHMC's growing network includes Mary Howard Health Center, Philadelphia's primary health center for the homeless; Rising Sun Health Center in Northeast Philadelphia; PHMC Care Clinic, which specializes in HIV care; Congreso Health Center, a partnership between PHMC and Congreso de Latinos Unidos; PHMC Health Connection (formerly Temple Health Connection); social services; and nursing support for homeless shelter residents throughout the City.

The clinics within our health center network are recognized as patient-centered medical homes, which means that patients get the benefit of quality care and a team of care experts who work together to help coordinate care based on the needs of the patient.

Our clinicians take pride in:

  • Easy health center access, including same-day appointments
  • Service for all, regardless of ability to pay
  • Multiple locations around the city
  • Excellent customer service
  • Disease management programs
  • Collaborative care processes

The PHMC health network is committed to our Beyond Care concept, a holistic, patient-centered approach to quality care provided by experts who organize care around the community's needs. We believe Beyond Care is what the community deserves.
