Long Island Federally Qualified Health Center
Our mission is to increase access to comprehensive primary and preventive health care and to improve the health status of the community, especially for the underserved and vulnerable in a financially responsible manner.
Our goal is to better address the needs of our communities and become recognized as the premier ambulatory program on Long Island. We implement the Triple Aim Model to insure better health outcomes, improved experience of care and reduce overall cost.
In July 2009, Long Island Federally Qualified Health Center (LIFQHC) became the first FQHC in Nassau County. This designation fulfills a dream of healthcare advocates who have pressed over the last two decades to provide greater access for the 33 medically underserved communities in Nassau County. This designation will help address the health needs of vulnerable populations, enhance services, hours of operation, obtain 340B reduced prescription pricing, quality improvement through governance by a local community board, with consumers having a significant role, giving us also the ability to also participate in the federal malpractice programs.
