The Family Christian Health Center was founded and developed in April 2000 by a group of family practitioners that got together to try and solve the lack of medical aid in the area. They were deeply concerned and committed to provide health care to medically underserved patients in the Harvey area and neighboring communities. Through many hardships and hours of hard work and dedication, these founding physicians started this Family Christian Health Center: William Crevier, M.D., founder of Christian Community Health Center in Chicago, Illinois; Pediatrician, Laurie Debonnett, M.D., Lisa Green, D.O., M.P.H. and Cynthia Jones, M.D., M.P.H. Services began at 15620 South Wood Street in a small medical building on the campus of Ingalls Memorial Hospital.
Family Christian Health Center experienced rapid growth as word of mouth spread about the practice. To address the need for additional space, Ingalls Hospital donated a parcel of land across the street on its campus on which a new state-of-the-art Family Christian Health Center was built.
The Affordable Care Act, was signed into law by President Obama on March 23rd, 2010 . Family Christian Health Center expanded services to meet the needs of our community by adding family, “Today Care” (walk-in services) and behavioral health, and services in an effort to better serve our patients and address the growing number of under insured patients in the area.
