Boulevard Family Health Care (FHC), a non-profit safety net clinic provides healthcare and supportive services for a medically
underserved population in the urban core of Kansas City since our founding in 1989. Family Health Care focuses on caring for
poor and uninsured, underinsured individuals with chronic diseases (including HIV, Diabetes, and Hepatitis C) and on caring
for pregnant women. FHC’s service area is Wyandotte County, Kansas, which is the poorest county in Kansas and
ranks dead last in health status.
For over twenty-five years, FHC has provided a "medical home”-
a stable source of care for the uninsured and underinsured poor. The majority of individuals served at FHC are uninsured,
individuals with HIV, Hepatitis C, diabetes, and other serious chronic diseases. Family Health Care uses a comprehensive
medical care model that provides team-based preventative assessments, acute care, and chronic disease management, on a sliding
fee scale. We emphasize early screening, diagnosis, treatment, and patient education which results in improved quality
as well as years of extended life for patients.
Family Health Care provides medical, dental, mental health and other supportive services to special populations (currently
we provide care for >600 individuals with HIV and about 200 with Hepatitis C).
(Family Health Care utilizes the University of Kansas Medical Center for
hospitalizations and specialty services.)
