Vernon J. Harris Medical and Dental Center (formerly known as Vernon J. Harris East End Community Health Center) was founded in March 1999 as a tribute to the legacy of Dr. Vernon J. Harris, a pioneer in the area of public health. A recipient of Federal Section 330 funding, the health center was built on the foundation of Dr. Harris’ principles of patient service, respect, and access. As our flagship site, Vernon J. Harris Medical and Dental Center effectively utilizes the tenets of the family practice model to guide and provide comprehensive primary care, dental, mental health and HIV/AIDS services throughout the clinical lifecycle. We accept all insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare, and provide those who are uninsured or with economic hardships a sliding-fee-scale program to help minimize their cost. Thank you for choosing us to care for you and your family.
