Organization History

Established in 1970 as a privately owned clinic, TCA Health, Inc. NFP was located in the Altgeld-Murry Homes Public Housing Development. Known then as The Clinic in Altgeld, the clinic was developed to serve the public housing residents with their health needs. It provided a range of primary health care services, preventive health screenings, health education, and social services.

In 1991, TCA Health began to receive federal funding and converted into a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). Receiving federal funding allowed the clinic to greatly assist the residents with improving their health care in addition, TCA Health Inc., NFP is a FTCA deeming facility. This allows TCA Health to service all patients under the protection of the Federal Tort Claim Act.
