Because it can be hard to get the help you need, Neighborhood Health Partners (NHP) brings the help you need to where you live.
Our Neighborhood Health Partners (NHP) Care Team is made up of community health workers, community paramedics and social workers. These people bring free or low-cost services to places where people have trouble getting to the care they need. The team also connects people with resources in the community.
NHP Care Team’s services are provided to most people who don’t have health insurance. The Care Team visits patients, offers free health screenings and sets up plans of care. Our team can help people find a medical home, community resources and affordable health insurance.
It’s important to have a medical home because it is a doctor’s office where the doctors and staff know you, your medical history, and are committed to help you stay on track with your needs. The Care Team also checks your home to help you find ways to improve your health and safety.
Participants may have access to:
Patients must be part of AccessHealth to receive NHP Care Team services. AccessHealth is a program that coordinates healthcare services for low-income individuals. AccessHealth team members approve patients for the program. If appropriate, they also will refer patients to the NHP Care Team.

AccessHealth serves as the gateway to care for the uninsured in our community. Once enrolled in AccessHealth, participants may also enjoy the support of the NHP Care Team or the Mobile Health Clinic.
