Group History& Description

NHS is a Federally Qualified Health Center that has provided basic health care to low-income and uninsured people in North and Northeast Minneapolis for over 50 years. At our four clinic sites located in the neighborhoods of North & Northeast Minneapolis and Coon Rapids, MN, we serve about 8,000 people yearly making 20,000 clinic visits.  NHS offers a friendly, diverse work environment. 

Clinic Hours

We are open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, with extended hours until 7 or 8 pm on a weekly basis coming shortly.

Geographic and Patient Community

North and Northeast Minneapolis are culturally diverse neighborhoods with a concentration of low-income and uninsured individuals.  Many of our patients are African-American, Latino and other minorities, including immigrants from Southeast Asia and east and west Africa.  We use language interpreters and offer a sliding fee scale for our uninsured patients to ensure access to health care services.  Our Minneapolis clinics are located on bus lines and with easy access to I-94 and 35W.  Our Coon Rapids location serves many pediatric patients but also sees the full range of patients and backgrounds.
