NEMS staff

About NEMS

North East Medical Services (NEMS) was founded in 1968 and began serving patients in 1971 in response to the lack of linguistically and culturally appropriate health care services in the community. Over the last 50 years, we have grown from a small primary care clinic in San Francisco’s historic Chinatown to a large organization of dozens of primary care clinics and service delivery sites that supports the health care needs of over 70,000 patients each year. We have also launched a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) as of 2021!

As a 501(c)3 non-profit community health center, we are generously supported through an array of individual contributions, private foundations, public grants, contracts, and partnerships. These contributions support our mission/values and commitment to the underserved and immigrant communities every day.
