Camillus Health Concern
We are a private, non-profit organization that provides comprehensive health care, behavioral health and social services to men, women and children who are poor and homeless in Miami-Dade County.
Located in downtown Miami at 336 NW 5th Street — and operating a satellite clinic at Camillus House — our committed team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to maintaining the health and well being of Miami’s least fortunate residents. We offer comprehensive medical, dental, and behavioral health care, as well as health education and specialty care.
Following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ, Camillus Health Concern’s mission is to provide Christian hospitality and respect for life through direct services of health care, outreach, counseling and case management to persons who are poor and homeless in South Florida.
CAMILLUS HEALTH CONCERN OFFERS PRIMARY HEALTH CARE SERVICES IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI
Operating as a ministry of the Hospitaller Brothers of St. John of God, the center delivered its first health care services in 1984, when a group of volunteer doctors began to provide basic services to clients eating dinner at the Camillus House soup kitchen. Since then, Camillus Health Concern has grown into a sophisticated, professional health care delivery organization operating a state-of-the-art health center with community and street outreach sites.
The Camillus Health Concern has been a Healthcare for the Homeless 330(h) grantee through the Bureau of Primary Health Care since 1989 and was designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in 1996. Camillus Health Concern is the only free-standing, comprehensive Healthcare for the Homeless funded provider in Miami-Dade County and is the only agency in the county that exclusively provides healthcare for persons who are homeless.
Camillus Health Concern is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n). The organization is an FTCA deemed community health center.
