About Us

The mission of the Metropolitan Family Health Network, Inc. is to provide high quality, accessible health care to the underserved population in our community, regardless of their ability to pay.

Metropolitan Family Health Network is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that provides a comprehensive roster of ambulatory health care services. Incorporated in 2006, we are dedicated to making high-quality, affordable health care accessible to all of the residents of Hudson County, particularly those in our underserved communities. We accept most health care insurance as well as Medicare and Medicaid, and have a sliding-fee scale for patients who do not have insurance. Metropolitan Family Health Network never turns patients away because they cannot pay.

Metropolitan Family Health Network has three locations within the community that are easily accessed via public transportation: our main site at 935 Garfield Avenue in Jersey City, as well as 5300 Bergenline Avenue in West New York; and 857 Bergen Avenue in Jersey City, where we provide services primarily for the growing number of people who now find themselves homeless. Transportation is provided for special populations seen at the Bergen Avenue site.

Since our official opening in 2006, the number of men, women and children we serve has increased from 12,114 patient visits per year to 48,915. Our staff of 88 — including 14 physicians — is fluent in more than eight languages.

Metropolitan Family Health Network is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation that receives financial support from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services. Our organization is a member of the New Jersey Primary Care Association.
