Primary Care Health Services, Inc. is a
private, community-based nonprofit corporation, formed in 1976 as the successor
to the Homewood-Brushton Neighborhood Health Center (founded in 1968). Located
on Hamilton Avenue in the Homewood community of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the
health center was subsequently renamed the "Alma Illery Medical
Center" to honor the civic leader and community champion Mrs. Alma Illery.
Today, the Alma Illery Medical Center is the
flagship for a county-wide system of nine medical, four dental, seven healthcare
for the homeless, and one family support services sites operated by Primary
Care Health Services, Inc., to address the unique needs of a multicultural,
predominately low-income population.
