Our Vision

To be the preferred Medical Home for West Michigan area residents.

Patient Center Medical Home – PCMH

A medical “home” is the place you come to for all of your medical needs. At your medical home, you can expect to be supported in your health care goals, respected as an individual, and receive treatment for acute and chronic disease, as well as advice to help you stay healthy. You can expect to feel welcome and comfortable with your medical team, and you can expect that you can have timely access to care with a decision-maker available through the office 24 hours a day. The PCMH concept is being promoted nationally, and Muskegon Family Care is striving to meet specific requirements to be designated as a “Patient Center Medical Home.”


As a community health center, we provide a range of services far greater than an “ordinary doctor’s office.” We develop programs and services to meet the changing needs of our community, all with a goal of creating a healthier Muskegon.

Medical Care

Our health clinic offers a full range of primary care services to families, including immunizations, well-child care, pregnancy care and deliveries, family planning services, and osteopathic manipulation. Primary medical care services are provided for people of all ages, accepting Medicare, all types of Medicaid, private insurances, and the uninsured (who are offered a sliding fee scale for services).

Dental Care

General Dentistry services are provided for patients of all ages, including emergency dental care and hygiene visits. We specialize in providing care for children with Medicaid. We accept almost all dental insurances, and can assist uninsured and underinsured patients with a sliding fee scale.

Behavioral Health

Muskegon Family Care’s Behavioral Health Team is committed to preserving and improving the quality of mental health for the adult, child, or family experiencing difficulties in their daily level of functioning. Our integrated mental health services are offered by trained therapists who offer outpatient treatment in a professional, caring, and confidential manner. While not an all-inclusive list, some issues addressed during individual therapy include:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Bereavement
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Depressive Disorders

Our goal is to help individuals and families in their understanding of themselves and develop skills that can help them achieve healthier and happier lives.

Maternal Infant Health Program

The Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is a home visiting program for pregnant women and infants with medical insurance in Michigan. Our registered nurses and social workers provide care coordination and health education to promote healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants. We employ a registered dietitian who works with our families, and we also collaborate with local Infant mental health specialists. Supportive services are provided to pregnant women and families of infants up to 1 year of age.

Sliding Fee Scale Discounts

MFC provides services to all individuals, regardless of their ability to pay. A sliding fee discount program is available based on household income and family size (at 200% or below the federal poverty guidelines).

Our Patient Assistance Coordinators are available to assist with those uninsured and underinsured to help determine eligibility.

Pharmaceutical Assistance

MFC helps patients afford medications in a variety of ways. We have a discount pharmacy program through our own our Pharmacy. This program provides significant discounts for MFC patients without prescription coverage. Stop by the MFC Pharmacy located in our our Clinic for further information. We also offer a limited supply of sample medications and assist patients in applying for pharmaceutical company indigent drug programs. Ask at your MFC clinic for more information.

Transportation Services

MFC patients can be transported to appointments by our drivers.

Outreach and Enrollment/Certified Application Counselors

You may be eligible for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Muskegon Family Care can assist in determining if you qualify and what qualified health plan is best for you. We help many of our patients create a “marketplace” account and then help them navigate the application process by answering questions regarding the health plans they qualify for. Bilingual assistance is available.

Muskegon Family Care has several outreach activities to promote the health of the community. Past activities have included a “Mammogram Party” to encourage women to get mammograms, “Give Kids a Smile Day” in which 63 uninsured children received dental care at no charge from volunteer dentists, and participation in various health fairs throughout the community.

Mitzi Fund

This emergency fund for patients of MFC is used to assist in meeting emergency needs and needs that cannot be met in other ways. Staff refer patients in need to the fund, which can offer up to $50 on a one-time basis. This fund is made possible through staff donations and has helped patients with such items as food, clothing, Christmas gifts, prescription co-pays, and other items.

Household / Clothing Donations

MFC staff members have donated thousands of dollars worth of household and clothing items to patients in need.


Our Laboratory Department staff is made up of credentialed phlebotomist technicians and certified medical assistants. We are considered to be an Express Lab that performs and analyzes various hematology and chemistry tests right here on campus. Our on-site laboratory services are very important tools in determining the best course of action for patients.

Language Services

MFC takes reasonable steps to ensure persons with limited English proficiency gain meaningful access to MFC services, programs, and activities in their primary language. Assistance is provided through bilingual staff, telephonic interpretation services, or local organizations providing interpretation or translation services. These services are provided free of charge to MFC patients.
