Dear Friends:
Have you noticed anything different when you’ve been to a Neighborhood Family Practice Community Health Center, visited our website, seen a social media post  or reviewed any of our printed communications materials lately? We hope so!

In 2016, we introduced the Neighborhood Family Practice of the future via the rollout of a new brand that is now evident everywhere you look. Our new brand foundation encompasses everything from the establishment of guiding principles that drive all we do to a new logo, updated facilities and a focus on consistency across our multiple locations and communications.

The rollout incorporated many aspects, some clearly visible, others not so much, including:

  • New signage on all community health center locations (thanks to the Cleveland Foundation)
  • Redesign of our website, and many printed materials
  • Education of all staff and board about our guiding principles and what they mean to different groups of stakeholders
  • Training on how we describe our neighborhood based comprehensive care, culture, mission and service delivery to those we serve and community partners

With our foundation and direction now clearly defined, Neighborhood Family Practice is well-positioned to meet whatever changes are sure to come to the health care system in this country.

NFP experienced significant growth and success in the past year, some of which includes:

  • Providing high quality health service to more than 18,000 patients.
  • Obtained Federal funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to increase access to integrated oral health care (dental) services and improve oral health outcomes for patients.
  • Purchased and renovated a freestanding building to house our existing
  • Puritas Community Health Center to more than double the capacity for services. This was partially funded with a $1 million HRSA grant.
  • Celebrated the grand opening of the W. 117th Community Health Center location (our fifth!) opening a closed physician office on the corner of 117th and Lorain.
  • Accepted Ohio infant mortality reduction funding to lead the expansion of our CenteringPregnancy® model of care in Cuyahoga County.

We thank you – our donors, community partners, staff and patients – for your dedication and ongoing support. Both have been, and will always be, key to helping us to continue our 36-year tradition of fulfilling our mission of partnering with our community for everyone’s best health by providing quality health care services regardless of ability to pay; treating patients with compassion, dignity and respect; protecting confidentiality; and offering culturally sensitive services and community outreach. 

Sincerely yours in good health,
