Primary Care Health Services, a private non-profit community based corporation, formed in 1976 to assume control of the Homewood-Brushton Neighborhood Health Center.

This neighborhood health center, located on Hamilton Avenue in Homewood, was subsequently renamed the Alma Illery Medical Center to honor community champion and “doctor of goodwill” Alma Illery, early advocate of integration in hospitals and health care. 

Today, Alma Illery Medical Center is the flagship for a county-wide network of thirteen centers and several initiatives operated by Primary Care Health Services, Inc. to address the special needs of a multicultural, predominately low-income population.
