Located in the City of Hagerstown in semi-rural Washington County of Western Maryland, Family Healthcare of Hagerstown (FHH) is a federally qualified health center providing quality healthcare services for families and individuals at every life stage.
Because we believe in caring for “the whole person”, We have created a “patient centered medical home” that allows patients to receive many services under one roof: primary care, mental health services, dental care, lab and pharmacy services, case management, group and individual education, and much more.
Our mission – to promote a healthy community by providing affordable, accessible and compassionate healthcare to individuals and families of all ages, races and economic backgrounds – drives us each and every day. You can be assured that when you come to FHH, you receive more than medical attention and clinical services. You receive personalized, integrated, collaborative care and treatment. We believe that patients should be an active part of their care so we want patients to really understand their treatment and care. We will take time to educate and empower you.
Our roots run deep – in the early 1990s, members of the medical community in Washington County joined together in an effort to bring affordable healthcare services to residents of downtown Hagerstown. The community health center that they founded was recognized in 2003 as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) under the name Walnut Street Community Health Center. In 2015 the Center relocated to South Cleveland Avenue in downtown Hagerstown doing business as Family Healthcare of Hagerstown. Today we are led by our Executive Director, Kim Murdaugh, who has provided stellar leadership since 2003.
To best serve our patients, FHH is a participating provider with most major insurance companies; this includes Medicare and Medicaid MCOs. We also have a Financial Assistance Program for all patients regardless of inability to pay and we offer a Sliding Fee Discount based on family size and total family income.
Washington County is a perfect blend of city and country life. Residents enjoy excellent quality of life - filled with recreational, cultural, and intellectual opportunities.
