“My son was diagnosed with diabetes at an early age; our lifestyle choices were affecting his health. We enrolled in El Centro’s Nutrición con Corazón program and it helped us to make healthier choices as a family and to be more active. Since participating in the program, my son has lost 20 pounds, has improved blood sugar levels, and is more confident. We couldn’t have done this without the support from El Centro.”

For more than two decades, El Centro de Corazón has been at the heart of the East End community. Today, El Centro serves as a community-based health center, providing vital primary care, pediatric, prenatal, mental health, and dental services. Community health centers are a critical part of our health care safety net, helping families that have diffculty finding reliable, affordable health care. They are especially important in the 29 th District, where we have an underserved community and one of the highest rates of uninsured individuals in the country. I thank El Centro for their continued commitment to the health of East End families.

I was hospitalized for a kidney infection and when I was released they told my daughter to find a doctor for me. She called clinics but no one responded to our request for help. She called El Centro and they were able to see me and help me that same day and then helped my husband get an appointment for a bad cough he had. There are good people here.

At El Centro de Corazón, I received very good attention from the beginning of my pregnancy on. The doctor treated me very well and gave me clear instructions and explained what to expect from the medical treatments I received.

When I have my appointments, I feel like home. Everyone is so kind and caring that it makes me feel I can trust them. My son is a patient too. He has been receiving care since he was in my belly. I know that if Mateo suddenly gets sick, he will be seen that same day. Low cost medical care, you cannot find that everywhere so I am glad there is someone that cares from the community.
