People’s Center Clinics and Services

People’s Center is a nationally recognized non-profit community health center serving diverse communities in south Minneapolis and surrounding communities. People’s Center operates a network of three clinics and accepts all patients regardless of their ability to pay. PCCS health care providers and staff reflect the diversity of patients served, with more than 60% being people of color and 40% bilingual.

People’s Center Clinics & Services was initially founded as Cedar Riverside People’s Center in 1970 by grassroots organizers in the neighborhood who sought to address the needs of the West Bank students and residents. The result was one of Minnesota’s first free medical clinics. In 2003, People’s Center became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). Since becoming an FQHC, the number of patients served annually by People’s Center increased from 2,000-9,000– demonstrating the burgeoning need for accessible and affordable health care in our service area. We also added behavioral health services and expanded our supportive services .People’s Center is now a Minnesota Health Care Home certified clinic, validating our commitment to providing comprehensive, patient-centered care.
