Focusing on affordable health care for low-income residents, nonprofit Jewish Family Service's newest facility has opened in Dallas, near the southern Richardson border.

Called the JFS Northpoint Health Center, the 5,500-square-foot facility offers a range of pediatric and adult health care services ranging from annual physical examinations and cancer screenings to behavioral health and chronic disease management.

According to JFS, about 793,000 low-income residents in the Dallas area “lack a medical provider, and many rely on hospital emergency rooms or go without care.” By 2028, the organization says it plans to serve around 55,000 individuals across its services.

“We have been working toward this moment for four years,” JFS Chief Operations Officer Deizel Sarte said in a new release. “The families we serve at JFS are disproportionately impacted by a lack of access to [health care], and most go without taking care of their medical needs, which only worsens many treatable conditions over time. This was the driving force on the journey to opening this clinic and adding primary care services to our comprehensive care.”
