Jefferson’s Family Medicine Center (FMC) is a newly renovated modern office in an historic building in Center City Philadelphia located one block from the main hospital complex. The patient office includes 39 exam rooms, a large conference room, two precepting areas, 2 labs, treatment and procedure rooms, administrative offices, a staff lounge, a kitchen and a resident work lounge.
Each physician is assured of caring for families and individuals with a wide variety of healthcare needs. Patients who seek care from residents and faculty in Jefferson Family Medicine Associates (JFMA) come from diverse backgrounds and find us through a variety of means. Patients are referred for primary care from the emergency center; from colleagues within the Jefferson community, from one of several health maintenance organizations, and from friends and families already taken care of by the practice. Our practice is known for its diversity including professionals in the Center City community and individuals from many under-served urban communities throughout Philadelphia. Although the population is remarkably diverse with patients from every socioeconomic group, the department maintains a special interest in the healthcare needs of marginalized communities. More than half of our patients are from minority groups, the majority of which are African- Americans. Most of the visits to our practice are from individuals from medically underserved communities in Philadelphia.
