For more than 30 years, this Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) has stood the test of time, providing caring, committed, accessible, affordable, and high-quality health care for generations of families in Grant County, Marion, and surrounding areas - especially the uninsured and underinsured.
Indiana Health Centers (IHC) Marion serves more than 7,000 clients each year. It is specifically focused on the growing number of people who, for economic or other reasons, have difficulty accessing medical care.
The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program sees more than 1,800 low-income new mothers and their babies each month. Staff provide nutrition information and follow-up care to pregnant women, new mothers and children, up to age five.
Board-certified physicians see patients during hours the community selects. Open one evening each week and the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, the clinic provides family care for the entire community.
IHC Marion has a rich, diverse history. It was the first Indiana Health Center site to open. Established in 1977 as a migrant health center, it began by serving the needs of thousands of seasonal farm workers, annually harvesting tomatoes and other agricultural crops, as well as working in the canning factories in and around Orestes, IN.
Now, decades later, an IHC-staffed Health Check Mobile Van provides medical outreach and vital health care to migrant farm workers and their families.
