Our Program


HealthLinc is a not-for-profit Federally Qualified Health Center that provides medical, dental, optometry, and behavioral health services to people of all ages, regardless of their ability to pay. In 1996, HealthLinc began as Hilltop Neighborhood House, a neighborhood clinic and childcare center in Valparaiso, IN. Since then, HealthLinc has expanded across northern Indiana to 12 clinics, two telehealth clinics, and one mobile medical/dental clinic.

HealthLinc is committed to leadership, transformation, and innovation in health care. Residents are provided enhanced training in a community health center setting that grows their confidence, fosters their mastery of skills and allows them to gain competence in primary care practice. They provide intensive training on both the clinical complexity of family practice in the safety net setting and on a high-performance, Patient-Centered Medical Home model of primary care.


We create healthy communities. By following a Patient-Centered Medical Home model, HealthLinc can provide care that is coordinated, comprehensive and accessible to achieve improved healthcare outcomes and satisfaction for their patients.


We make a difference to every patient, every time. We deliver exceptional care, without fail, by developing networks of integrated partners, highly trained staff, and diverse services to those in our communities. We cultivate our value by working through our organization to improve populations while managing the individual needs of each patient. As barriers are presented, we find a way to overcome through innovation and creativity.

HealthLinc celebrates the vibrancy and individuality of every community and culture. We quickly adapt to meet each situation with determination and strength of character. We are recognized as a servant leader in the communities we serve through both word and action. HealthLinc makes health care better.

This is the vision we live every day.
