Located in the City of Hagerstown in semi-rural Washington County in Western Maryland, Family Healthcare is a private, non-profit community health center providing quality healthcare services for families at every life stage in Washington County and the surrounding areas.
Family Healthcare has created a “medical home” that allows patients to receive primary care, mental health services, dental care, case management, lab and pharmacy services all in one place.
Our mission is to promote a healthy community by providing affordable, accessible and compassionate healthcare to individuals and families of all ages, races and economic backgrounds.
And that mission drives us each and every day.
So, when you come to Family Healthcare, you receive more than medical attention and clinical services. You receive personalized, integrated, collaborative care and treatment. Patients should be part of their care – we believe in educating and empowering our patients to participate in and understand their treatment and care.
Family Healthcare is a participating provider with most major insurance companies and HMOs, Medicare and Medicaid. We also have a Financial Assistance Program for all patients regardless of inability to pay and offer a Sliding Fee Discount based on family size and total family income.
Family Healthcare’s roots go back to the 1990s when members of the medical community in Washington County joined together in an effort to bring affordable healthcare services to residents of downtown Hagerstown. The community health center that they founded was recognized in 2003 as a Federally Qualified Health Center under the name Walnut Street Community Health Center.
In 2015 the Center relocated to South Cleveland Avenue in downtown Hagerstown doing business as Family Healthcare of Hagerstown. Today Family Healthcare is led by our Executive Director, Kim Murdaugh, who has provided stellar leadership since 2003.
The Center is a 501©(3) private, non-profit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the majority of who are Family Healthcare patients.
