History

Neighborhood Family Practice (NFP) has been serving Cleveland’s near west side with quality primary health care for over 35 years. Our mission is to partner with the community for everyone’s best health. NFP became a federally qualified health center in 2000. NFP has continued to grow to meet the needs of its urban community and, in 2005, opened its second community health center in the Tremont neighborhood. NFP opened its third community health center in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood in 2012.

In 2014 Neighborhood Family Practice opened its fourth location in the Puritas neighborhood and began a partnership with The Centers for Families and Children. The partnership is currently developing models of integrated health at the West and Gordon Square offices of The Centers which makes it possible for adults with severe persistent mental illness to receive both behavioral health and primary care services at the same location.

In partnership with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, NFP launched its school-based health program in the winter of 2015 at Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy and Max Hayes High School. NFP’s fifth community health center opened in 2015 on West 117th and Lorain Avenue.

In 2015, Neighborhood Family Practice had 37 medical and behavioral health providers including 12 medical doctors, seven certified nurse practitioners and four certified nurse midwives who provided care to 17,470 patients at over 64,000 office visits.
