Our Mission: Opening doors to a healthier community through compassionate, affordable, quality care.
Since we opened our first clinic in Ogden in 1994, Midtown CHC has focused on providing community residents with access to high-quality and affordable healthcare — especially those with lower incomes, without health insurance, who speak languages other than English, and individuals who face barriers to receiving care in a traditional healthcare setting.
A certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Midtown has grown to seven clinics located in Ogden, Davis County, and Salt Lake City. Our dedicated healthcare providers believe that everyone should be treated with compassion and respect, no matter their background or insurance status. They believe that patients deserve to receive care in modern, comfortable offices using state-of-the-art medical equipment.
Midtown serves over 26,000 patients a year in 30+ languages. We provide comprehensive primary care including treatment for acute and chronic illnesses, pediatric care, prenatal care, well care, behavioral health, dental care, and pharmaceuticals. Our Salt Lake City facility is a contracted provider for refugee services.

History of Community Health Centers
- Community Health Centers were originally a part of the civil rights movement and the War on Poverty. Initially named “Neighborhood Health Centers,” clinics were created in 1965 to provide health and social services access points for underserved community members.
- In 1965, funding was approved for the first two neighborhood health centers, which opened in a public housing project in Boston, Massachusetts and in Mound Bayou, Mississippi.
- In 1975, Congress transformed neighborhood health centers to “Community and Migrant Health Centers.”
- Finally, The Health Centers Consolidation Act of 1996 combined these separate entities into “Community Health Centers.”
