At United Family Medicine, patients receive high quality primary care, dental services, behavioral health services, as well as lab and x-ray services, and referrals to community resources. We deliver high quality health care to all persons regardless of their insurance status. United Family Medicine maintains its independence as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC); we are not part of Allina Health System.

Our biggest opportunity (video, 30 sec)
United Family Medicine opened in 1992 as a result of two primary care clinics merging within the (Allina) United Hospital health system. We operated within the Allina Health System until 2004, when we earned our status as an independent Federally Qualified Health Center look-alike (FQHC-la). In 2012 we qualified for full FQHC status, meeting the requirements of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and solidifying our independent nonprofit business model. Throughout our journey to clinic independence, we have retained our mission toward “excellence in delivering healthcare for all; training the providers of tomorrow”. In 2009, we moved to our current home at Randolph Avenue and West 7th Street. This building allowed us to expand services and meet the health care demands of our growing community while contributing to the vitality of our region.
