Mission:  Neighborhood Health is Nashville's Family Doctor. We are dedicated to improving the health of our community by providing affordable quality care to all.


Community Board Of Directors:  The Board of Directors of Neighborhood Health includes consumers from our neighborhoods.


Putting Service First:  Neighborhood Health makes it easy to get care you need when you need it.

  • Affordable Care:  Neighborhood Health knows that many people and families are uninsured. We have a discounted fee program that makes all our health services affordable.
  • The Neighborhood Focus:  Neighborhood Health knows that is important for people to get health care close to home.  We have centers from Madison in north Davidson county to Southern Hills so care is available at convenient locations throughout the county.
  • Same Day Visits:  You cannot control when you or your family get sick.  We are there to serve you when you need us.  Please call ahead if possible, 615.227.3000. But if you can't, just drop in and customer service will help you be seen that day.
  • 24-hour Response:  Sometimes you just need professional medical advice on how to handle something that comes up on holidays, nights, and weekends. Or maybe you need your prescription filled.  Call 615.227.3000.   Our answering service will take your number and a provider will call you back and provide advice or help.  If it is a true emergency, call 911 and go to the emergency room.
  • Language Interpretators:  Spanish interpreters are generally available at the centers. Patients who require other languages can work with the provider through an interpreter on a phone.
  • Total and Personal Care:  You have unique needs. Neighborhood Health offers every patient a provider who will work with them to meet and coordinate all their healthcare needs.  Neighborhood Health has medical, dental and counseling services. There is also health education and assistance with insurance enrollment. We will refer you to other services, receive their reports and manage your total care.

Recognition And Awards

Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Organizations (JCAHO):  Accredited by the Joint Commision since 2000, Neighborhood Health has demonstrated that all its centers meet the industry standards for assuring patient safety and quality care.


Patient Center Medical Home:  In 2014, Neighborhood Health was awarded this certification. This recognition goes to those organizations which demonstrate significant transformation in managing the care of their patients.


FTCA Deemed Organization:  The Federally Supported Health Centers Assistance Act of 1992 and 1995 granted medical malpractice liability protection through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) to HRSA-supported health centers. Under the Act, health center employees are considered Federal employees and are immune from lawsuits, with the Federal government acting as their primary insurer.

History And Impact

United Neighborhood Health Services began in 1976 bringing together two volunteer clinics in Cayce Homes and south Nashville. The volunteers wanted to address the lack of accessible and affordable healthcare in south and east Nashville neighborhoods. They provided care from an old house on 12th Avenue South and in a public housing apartment in Cayce Homes.

Nearly 40 years later those two locations (Cayce Place and Edgehill) have relocated to nearby upgraded facilities and continue to serve the nearby communities. Now known as Neighborhood Health, the organization has grown into a network of 11 centers serving over 25,000 each year, and providing over 90,000 visits each year.

With quality comprehensive services and innovative programs, Neighborhood Health has remained passionately committed to its mission to make all services available to everyone without regard to ability to pay.
