Welcome from Wilson Forney CEO of Family Health Services Sandusky, OHIO
Hello, and welcome to Family Health Services. I am delighted that you have chosen to visit us and learn more about our organization. I, along with the board of directors, and the staff commit daily to service those in need of primary and preventive health care regardless of an individual’s payment status. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance plans also and no one will be turned away regardless of their ability to pay. Our vision and philosophy is simple; we will strive to improve the health of our community by providing a “health care home” that addresses the physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being of our patients with a special emphasis on people living on limited resources. We have had many successes over the past 4 years. Recently, we added a full-time certified nurse practitioner to our pool of providers adding a new unique standard of care to our heatlhcare environment. Family Health Services also works collaboratively with Firelands Regional Medical Center's Residency Program physicians, who also provides patient care with the most up-to-date methods and standards primary healthcare has to offer. For more than 4 years, Family Health Services maintained its designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center with Look-alike status. By expanding our health center hours an additional two hours in the evening, two days per week, it is our hopes that we have removed a access issues for those needing quality primary healthcare and preventive services outside the traditional 9am-5pm office hours. This past January, Dr. Penola Jones joined our team of providers to expand our service offerings to include obstetrical and gynecological services here. Family Health Services also provides immunizations and a discounted government prescription program allowing you to get brand name medications at a reduced cost for our eligible Family Health Services patients. As Family Health Services continues to grow, we will keep you informed of our successes. If you are looking for a person-centered medical home and a staff that cares about your well-being, call us or stop by and one of our team members will be glad to assist you in what could be the start of a healthy and happy lifestyle.
