HISTORY, MISSION AND VISION
United Health Center’s (UHC) mission is to provide equitable care that builds healthier communities.
We are committed to ensuring access to high-quality, affordable, comprehensive healthcare for all residents of Forsyth County, regardless of their insurance status or their ability to pay.
UHC began as an outgrowth of community organizing activities led by Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods, and six neighborhood associations in southeastern Winston-Salem in 2003. Community leaders from Morningside, Southside, Waughtown Street, Easton, Flatrock and Belview neighborhoods identified healthcare as a critical need to sustaining a healthy neighborhood. Today, UHC has grown into a medical home for thousands of residents and is Forsyth County’s only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). We are proud to provide comprehensive medical, dental, and behavioral health services to individuals and families who would not other have access to care.
The vision of the UHC’s leadership is to provide a high-level of care and education that will positively impact neighborhoods, communities, and ultimately be a world model for quality care.
