We Are Jordan
Jordan Health was born from the action and advocacy of dedicated citizens, in partnership with vital community-based organizations, that led to the establishment of the original center, named the Rochester Neighborhood Health Center, in 1968. Today, Jordan Health is a dedicated team of healthcare and human services professionals in a network of primary care offices and health centers.
