New Look-Alike Approved in Erie

Author: Amanda Tekely/Friday, January 04, 2019/Categories: Member News

Multicultural Health Evaluation Delivery System, Inc. (MHEDS) in Erie was notified by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) on Dec. 28, 2018, of FQHC Look-Alike designation approval. MHEDS, operational since 1972, started as a joint project of the Erie Diocesan Mission Office and the Erie Council of Churches. Over time, MHEDS expanded as the local population it serves evolved. MHEDS currently serves a diversity of people in the Erie area, including Bosnian, Bhutanese, Burmese, Congolese, Eritrean, Iraqi, Kurdish, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Russian, Ukrainian, Somalian, Sudanese, and Vietnamese patients. MHEDS's mission is to provide primary health care services to "medically at-risk" and low income patient populations in northwest Pennsylvania; to create systems of holistic health care delivery, inclusive of support services, and accessible to all regardless of their ability to pay; and to serve as a "one-stop" service entity, providing curative, preventive, educational, and support services. Congratulations to CEO Patty Stubber and her team.
