Founded in 1997, Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health – or NOAH – is dedicated to providing underserved communities with affordable, comprehensive, and quality care, holistically and with compassion for all. NOAH offers easy access to integrated primary medical care including behavioral health, psychiatry, dental services, pediatrics, prenatal, care coordination, benefits assistance, nutrition, and health/wellness services to underserved and low-income communities. A critical component of the healthcare safety net, NOAH’s overarching goal is to increase the number of children, youth, adults, and families receiving consistent healthcare in underserved low-income communities. In 2020, NOAH served 37,921 unique patients with 19% being best served in another language. Thirty nine percent (39%) identified as Hispanic, with 54% of our patients having Medicaid coverage or completely uninsured.
Individuals and families find more than medical services when they walk into one of NOAH’s health centers.
The neighborhoods where NOAH operates, of which 44% of people are living at or below the Federal Poverty Level, we offer additional assistance to support the whole person. Families, parents, or teens may be working two or three jobs while struggling to make ends meet for basic necessities like shelter/rent, utilities, and food.
NOAH accepts all patients regardless of their insurance or financial status.
If eligible, our discount program or Sliding Fee Schedule allows patients to pay reduced rates for services based on specific qualifications, including family income, size and situation. Patients will not be denied for services based on inability to pay. In addition, our community resource department offers enrollment assistance for programs like health insurance, financial assistance, food supplement, and more to individuals and families in need of those resources.
