The Heights Medical Clinic is a unique collaboration that brings care where it is needed most. Harlem Heights is a medically underserved area and is designated a Health Professional Shortage Area by the US Department of Health and Human Services. The community is also designated as severely distressed; with poverty level twice that of the rest of Lee County.
To help meet the need for care, The Heights Center began a discernment process to identify strategies to increase access to care in the community. Working with the Lee County Health Department , Lee Memorial Health System, Free Clinic Solutions, Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida and the Harlem Heights Improvement Association, The Heights Medical Center opened its doors in August 2013!
