We Treat You Right!

Westside Family Healthcare is Delaware’s largest non-profit federally-qualified community health center. Our mission is to provide equal access to quality healthcare regardless of our patients’ ability to pay. We have been fully accredited by The Joint Commission since 2000, and since 2012 we have been Joint-Commission-certified as a Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH). Our diverse patient population is drawn primarily from low-income communities in northern and central Delaware. We have grown rapidly over the past 10 years, adding several new practice locations.

We currently offer comprehensive primary care services at six clinical sites, plus a mobile health unit that serves agricultural workers in rural southern Delaware. We are approved for placement of National Health Service Corps scholars and for the NHSC and Delaware State loan repayment programs. Our PCMH practice model centers on disease prevention and wellness as well as treatment.

We encourage each patient to become actively engaged in managing their own health conditions. Our team-based model of care is on the cutting edge of primary care practices in Delaware and the region.
