The health services that became the Anthony L. Jordan Health Center, began more than 100 years ago, in 1904, and was one of the first five Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) established in the nation. Located in neighborhoods where the most pressing need exists, Jordan’s roots are steeped in service to underserved and uninsured residents, meeting their need for comprehensive health services. Anthony L. Jordan Health Center began in northeast Rochester and has since expanded to become a network of primary care offices and health centers serving residents living in three quadrants of the Rochester and in Canandaigua, N.Y.
Anthony L. Jordan Health Center (AJHC) was born out of a demand from one Rochester community to provide neighborhood-based healthcare that was affordable and accessible to all. The action and advocacy of dedicated citizens, in partnership with vital community-based organizations, led to the establishment of the center, originally named the Rochester Neighborhood Health Center, in 1968. After the nation declared a War on Poverty, FQHCs were established to address health disparities.
