Member Highlight

Lorain County Health & Dentistry


From their website:

"Lorain County Health & Dentistry has a proud history and an exciting future. The organization is well-positioned to provide a full range of primary and preventive health care services, of the highest quality, to vulnerable persons of all ages, meeting local need for many, many years to come.

It was in 2002 that our newly formed private, nonprofit organization was designated a Federally Qualified Health Center “Look Alike” by the Health Resources and Services Administration, a mark of quality and commitment to serve the underserved. While it wasn’t the “funded” designation we desired (we achieved that status in 2009), it was a significant and vital step in our organization’s early development. We have surely come a long way since 2002, thanks to the hard work and perseverance of our staff, both present and past."
