About Us
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 History
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.

Mission: We exist to provide high quality, accessible, and culturally responsive care to our community.

Vision: A healthy, vibrant and thriving community.

Trust and Integrity:  We are authentic and transparent in what we do and say. We hold ourselves accountable, individually and collectively, ever aware of our impact on others.

Connections: We care about each other and work to bring out the best in each other, to create a culture in which all staff and patients thrive.

Openness and Respect: We honor the traditions and lived experiences of everyone who walks through our doors.

Community: Our roots are in the West 7th neighborhood of St. Paul and beyond. We partner with individuals and local business partners for our community.

ResponsivenessWe listen, collaborate, and innovate to provide compassionate, quality care for everyone.
