Neighborhood HealthSource is a group of non-profit primary care clinics serving North and Northeast Minneapolis and the northern suburbs.
We have been bringing accessible, affordable care to patients in our communities since 1971. Neighborhood HealthSource is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).
Our Mission & Vision
It is the mission of Neighborhood HealthSource to improve the health of our communities by providing quality health care services that are affordable and accessible, while advancing health equity for all.
What does our mission look like in action? We envision a community in which cost is never a barrier to access, where every person can access comprehensive health care from compassionate, qualified, well trained and respectful staff, where everyone honors diversity and culture, and where health equity is achieved.
What is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC)?
Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) are clinics funded by the federal government to provide primary care in under-served areas. FQHCs are also called community health centers.
Why choose a Federally Qualified Health Center?
For people without insurance or who have trouble paying for healthcare, health centers like Neighborhood HealthSource are an affordable, accessible option. FQHCs keep people out of emergency rooms and focus on managing patients’ health in the long term. This increases access to healthcare and results in significant savings within a healthcare system.
Patients who do have insurance can support our mission of providing high-quality affordable healthcare for all by getting care at our clinic. As a patient at an FQHC, you know your healthcare dollars support members of your community who can’t afford healthcare.
We’re one of ten Minnesota health centers that make up the Federally Qualified Urban Health Network (FUHN). FUHN supports Medical Assistance patients with primary care to improve the overall health of the community by reducing emergency room visits. This results in significant savings within our healthcare system.
These ten health centers work as a group to improve clinical quality and patient satisfaction, while reducing the total cost of care and improving patient access to primary care. Over five years, FUHN’s activities have saved over $20 million by reducing unnecessary hospitalization and emergency room use. FUHN is transforming the way primary care is accessed and delivered in our marketplace, and represents the innovation we bring to the health care system.
