PCC Community Wellness Center (PCC) began in 1980 as the Parent Child Center, a three-room clinic at West Suburban Medical Center that offered prenatal, postpartum, and infant care for underserved residents of Chicago’s impoverished Austin community. In 1992, PCC was incorporated as an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. PCC attained the status of a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) look-alike in 1994 and received full FQHC recognition in 2002. Since then, PCC has grown to encompass twelve health centers, serving Westside Chicago and the near west suburbs. PCC also provides care at West Suburban Medical Center, Westlake Hospital, Norwegian American Hospital and Loretto Hospital.
