50th anniversary

In 1973, a small band of Asian American advocates—idealist medical students and fierce community activists—started a free storefront clinic to serve the elderly Filipino, Chinese, and Japanese residents of Seattle's Chinatown-International District. Today, ICHS is the largest Asian/Pacific American-serving health care provider in the Pacific Northwest, a Federally Qualified Health Center that averages 30,000 patients a year across King County.

Since the beginning, our mission was as much about medical services as it was about interrupting the systemic racism that denied health care to communities of color. ICHS has grown to embrace and serve all marginalized peoples. As we honor our past, we remain committed to providing culturally and linguistically appropriate health and wellness services and health equity for all.
