The Philadelphia Department of Public Health operates 8 City health centers that provide high-quality medical care to Philadelphia residents.
Our health centers are located in neighborhoods all across Philadelphia. Our doctors, nurses, dentists and other health care providers work hard to keep you and your family healthy.
City health centers accept Medicare, Medicaid (Medical Assistance) and most insurance and HMO plans. If you are uninsured, we charge a small fee based on family size and income.
We can help you apply for health insurance you can afford.
As a registered patient, you will get your own personal doctor. It's a much better way to get medical care than going from doctor to doctor or rushing to the emergency room when something goes wrong.
