Family Health Centers Opens Eighth Location, November 13, 2017  Today, the Family Health Centers, Inc. (FHC) Board of Governors hosted an Open House and Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the opening of the organization’s newest community health center location at 2500 West Market Street. The facility was formerly KentuckyOne Health Westside Medical Clinic that was closed in August of 2017. Local elected leaders concerned with the closing of a health care clinic in an underserved area of the city, helped to bring KentuckyOne Health and Family Health Centers together to negotiate the transfer of the building to FHC. KentuckyOne Health donated the facility and the equipment to FHC, which reopened as Family Health Centers-West Market on Nov. 6, 2017

Family Health Centers Opens New Dental Office, April 11, 2017  The Family Health Centers, Inc. has opened a new dental office as part of its East Broadway location (834 East Broadway). In 2016, FHC received a $350,000 annual grant award from the Health Resources and Services Administration to expand oral health services to underserved communities in the Commonwealth. “Dental care is a huge need for our patients,” states Bill Wagner, CEO of FHC. “The Family Health Centers’ model is to provide multiple services in one location, to care for the whole person. This new dental office removes barriers to obtaining dental services and is a valuable service for the community.” Kentucky consistently ranks poorly on measures for oral health; in a recent Commonwealth Fund Report on Health System Rankings (2017), Kentucky was ranked 49th out of the 50 states for the number of adults with significant tooth loss.
