Supporting improved health with services beyond traditional healthcare.

PHC Innovations

What’s getting in the way of your health and wellbeing? We offer assistance addressing legal issues, signing up for health insurance, navigating the healthcare system with one-on-one peer support, and much more. 

At PHC, we offer a variety of services beyond traditional healthcare. Why? Because while access to medical care is a critical element of health, overall health is impacted by many other factors. With a spirit of innovation in everything we do, PHC supports patients to address what stands between them and their health and wellness goals.  

Helping our patients address a legal issue or access housing might not sound like healthcare, but if it helps you live a healthier life, we are eager to support.
