In the outside, Trillium Health may look like a neighborhood health center that provides accessible, affordable services to the community. On the inside, we’re focused on caring for all of an individual’s needs. “Extraordinary care, always,” is not just our noble purpose at Trillium Health, it’s our operational system. Our mission targets the complex vulnerabilities of our community, as we address the social, physical, and behavioral needs of those we serve, all under one roof.
Born from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Trillium Health has grown into a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Look A-Like, allowing us to expand our reach and serve those who too often face barriers to care. From primary medical care, to LGBTQ affirming care, we are committed to our community. If you are interested in an organization that truly cares, Trillium Health may be for you.
