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.

Regardless of our patient’s ability to pay, PCHS is dedicated to providing quality medical and dental services to children and adults, as well as:

Developing healthcare centers in medically underserved areas
Ensuring that services are accessible, relevant, and of high quality
Rendering continuing care to patients by the same clinician


To provide quality healthcare, and useful educational health services to the residents of Western Pennsylvania.

Vision Statement

To ensure that continued care is rendered to an individual by the same physician and that patients assume some responsibility for their care through ongoing health, education, and prevention.

We envision a region where health services are accessible and meet the needs of the population, while patients assume responsibility for their care through consistent appointments, education, and prevention
