A MESSAGE FROM MIRIAM Y. VEGA

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center website. For more than 30 years, our mission at the Health Center has been to deliver affordable, accessible and excellent health care, promote community wellness through preventative care programs and to improve the patient experience by insuring that our patients are treated with the dignity they are entitled to. By merging inclusion and respect for diversity with access to exceptional medical care, we improve lives, transform our communities and achieve critical health care equity.

Healthcare today faces many challenges but our commitment to meeting those challenges has never been greater. Addabbo will be responding to the ever-changing landscape with innovation, flexibility, resourcefulness, financial stewardship and transformative models which will enrich the healthcare services we provide.

We recognize that wellness is not simply a matter of going to your doctor. Excellent comprehensive medical care must include the social, community and environmental factors that influence our patients. In today’s stressful world, trauma-informed approaches to healthcare are essential to high-quality health care and patient engagement in their own health. Honoring our proud past, we will always stay on a path of continuous improvement.

Our dedicated Board of Directors, leadership team and staff remain committed to the communities we serve and to raising the bar for health care delivery in our communities. All of us are here to help you live a healthier life.

I urge you to review our website and take note of the many services we provide, free testing services, special programs and events in the community, health tips and resources. Thank you for choosing the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center as your Medical Home and for entrusting your family’s medical care to us.
