Welcome to the Family Health Center!

For over 40 years, the Family Health Center has offered primary medical care, family planning, nutrition education, and dental services for uninsured and underserved families living in Cowlitz, Wahkiakum, and Pacific Counties. We are a non-profit community health center operating clinics in Longview, Kelso, Woodland, Cathlamet, and Ocean Park.  We pride ourselves on our ability to provide exceptional care for our patients, and our sincere connection to the communities we serve.

The Family Health Center works closely with other health care providers and specialty clinics in order to connect our patients with all available resources. Our integrated behavioral heath services continue to grow, allowing patients to make better use of the health care system. We provide patient education materials and sound medical advice, helping our patients to avoid costly emergency department visits.

At the Family Health Center, we believe in community and the idea that everyone should pitch in to help each other. We hold a long tradition of partnering with community organizations to provide services and support.  The Family Health Center and the Highlands Neighborhood Association regularly co-sponsor free health education sessions and flu shot clinics. We have worked with local school districts to provide back-to-school immunizations for area children. Partnerships with Kaiser Permanente have resulted in free eye exams for our uninsured patients, and support for our diabetic care management efforts. And, the Family Health Center dental clinic of Longview is a regular participant of the Cowlitz County Veterans Stand Down event, offering free oral health screenings and follow up treatment for homeless veterans.

At the Family Health Center, we appreciate the community support we receive and look forward to serving our clinic areas for years to come.
