History of Family Healthcare


Our Story

Family Healthcare, a 501(c) (3) registered charity since 2002, serves the integrated medical, behavioral, and dental care needs of almost 10% of the population of Southwest Utah. 97% of our patients are in a low-income category, with 50% living below 100% of poverty. This means that a one-person household earns less than $12,490/yr., and a family of four earns $25,750/yr., or less. In 2020 we saw the healthcare needs of the region grow beyond the normal rate, particularly for those facing pandemic-related economic and health challenges.


2019 Patient Coverage
43% Uninsured
17% Medicaid/CHIP/Other public
8% Medicare
31% Private insurance


Our patients are a diverse group with a shared need for a healthcare-home that provides compassionate, accessible care. Many of our patients are employed in the service sector, where wages are low, healthcare insurance is typically not a benefit, and continuous employment is unreliable. Many other patients are elderly and frail with special healthcare needs. Since 46% of our patients identify as being in an ethnic or racial minority, our services are offered in a culturally competent manner, in both English and Spanish. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of continuing healthcare to all Southwest Utah residents.




How We Work

Skilled Family Healthcare staff answer the healthcare call in our community each day. These compassionate and experienced providers are proficient in primary medical, behavioral, and dental care. Disease prevention, health education, and linking patients with needed resources are an integral part of our patient-centered approach. Community outreach is central to our mission, especially with at-risk populations. Our medical doctors have specialized training in Osteopathic medicine, so they understand the healthcare needs of elderly patients, and our advanced practice providers are experts in taking care of individuals from birth through their aging years. All of Family Healthcare’s providers are licensed and board-certified, and continue to enhance their skills through continuing medical education. Family Healthcare provides all types of primary care including physicals, adult wellness visits, sick care, immunizations, well-child care, simple procedures, prenatal and hospital deliveries, and more.

We offer a Medically Assisted Treatment program that ensures safe care and recovery for patients suffering from substance use disorders including alcohol, tobacco, and opioids. Our behavioral health team are experts at providing integrated behavioral therapy in the primary care setting, while also reducing the stigma that often accompanies mental health care. Our children’s play therapy room is outfitted with technology that allows early years children to receive the trauma therapy they need while visiting with a therapist over video conference. Our dental teams provide preventive dental care and tooth-saving services such as fillings, root canals, crowns, and extractions if necessary. Family Healthcare’s integrated behavioral, medical, and dental care approach ensures that patients have the opportunity to address all of their healthcare needs in one visit.



Growing Healthy & Strong Together

We have steadily increased capacity each year, in order to meet the rapidly growing healthcare needs of one of the fastest developing regions in the nation. In order to sustain our ability to efficiently deliver care, it became clear that we would need to build. This year our Board of Directors made the bold decision to embark on the construction of a new, state-of-healthcare Community Health Center, to open in 2021 at 2276 Riverside Drive, St. George. (See the architect’s drawing below) This 33,000 sq. ft., two-level Community Health Center will enable Family Healthcare to serve the healthcare needs of 26,000 community residents by 2025.

The new clinic will provide a more efficient work environment for our healthcare professionals, with a continued focus on integrated patient-centered care. As well as offering the services that patients currently rely on, the new clinic will also offer six new dental treatment rooms, an onsite pharmacy offering affordable medications, and a gathering room for community activities. More Southwest Utah residents will be able to receive the same positive care that our patients count on today, right here in our community.




Family Healthcare is an integral link in the healthcare system of Southwest Utah and is the answer to getting access to healthcare for thousands of the residents of St. George, Hurricane, Cedar City, and surrounding communities. We deliver more than $14 million in annual economic impact and almost $2 million in yearly tax revenues. We employ 113 healthcare professionals and indirectly support more than 54 community jobs.

For almost twenty years Family Healthcare has been a health partner with the good people of Southwest Utah. We look forward to continuing to Make Lives Better by providing barrier-free, quality healthcare that helps build a stronger, healthier community for generations to come.  Support Family Healthcare today.

We can’t do it without you!



Our Mission, Vision and Values

When you think about a community health center, what do you see? Is it a crowded place where you feel like just a number? Or is it a place that only accepts you if have a certain kind of health insurance? Well, it’s not. Community Health Centers are thriving, patient-centered facilities that practice wellness, collaboration, and excellence.

For more than 45 years, Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA) supported health centers have provided comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations.  Community Health Centers are patient-oriented medical clinics that provide quality, integrated primary health care services to community members who are underserved or otherwise struggle to access the health care they need and deserve.

That is Family Healthcare!


  • OUR MISSION
  • OUR VISION
  • OUR VALUES

Making lives better in Southwest Utah by providing accessible, quality health care regardless of financial, language and cultural barriers.

We continue to evolve Family Healthcare  according to the model of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) which puts patients at the center of the healthcare system, and provides primary care that is “accessible, affordable, continuous, comprehensive, family centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective.” We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and insurance plans.  Services for the low-income, uninsured are provided on a Sliding Fee Scale that is based on family income and size.

As the health care home for over 14,000 residents in Southern Utah, Family Healthcare provides a comprehensive range of health, educational and preventive social services while treating the whole person in a quality, cost efficient and caring environment. We not only offer primary medical care services, but also supportive services that include behavioral health services, patient and family education, family planning, women’s health services, and translation services. We believe that each person deserves access to outstanding, state-of-the-art health care and highly skilled health care providers, and we are able to do this through generous federal and state grants; donations from private donors such as Intermountain Healthcare and the Eccles Foundation; and the dedication of all our employees.

Dr Gubbler is AMAZING!! He went the extra mile to help my son who arrived with a horrible toothache, he and his staff (Claudia and Jackie) figured out a space between patients so my son could be seen. The 3 of them make a great team and make you feel welcome and show they really care. I’m so grateful to work with people who love what they do and give their best. Thank you!!!

Family healthcare is the best! Dr Fisher is great! He really listens to me, even if it takes a while, and he cares. He doesn't try and get me out of the office as quickly as possible. He's not dismissive...like A LOT of doctors. The nurses are also amazing! They answer messages on the app, as well as voicemails, in a timely manner.Prescriptions are refilled quickly. They take my concerns seriously and take actions as needed. I highly recommend Dr Fisher to any new patients!!

Apparently very good at losing multiple test results. One Paticular doctor is absolutely petty and will hold a grudge, going so far as to drag feet with his job. The techs /nurses seem like they might be in on it.5/5 collecting cash and not providing a service is a meta move

I to had an appointment,took off work to go to my appointment as a New patient and got called 2 hrs before my appointment to be told they had to cancel for some reason or another, I was so disappointed I didn't even listen to the reason. Sounds like this place is notorious for this, I recommend going somewhere else. I went in again today and got told they don't do the shots I need. This place is the biggest joke I've ever seen

Yes. This is a clinic. However, the professionalism and concern for patients more than makes up for that fact. Melissa in particular helped a family member get prescriptions refilled in Utah. Fairly quickly. I was frustrated but she never lost her cool and did what she said she was going to do. Thank you for all your help.

Love everyone. Average wait time as any Dr. Appointment availability is good. The only thing I don't like is, this location doesn't have it's own phone number!It's not really fun to call St. George office listen to all the messages to ask to be transferred to Hurricane office. Then that process is long then ringing and HOPEFULLY they answer. Cause after 2 tries you can tell St.G staff, are annoyed. FHC-GET HURRICANE THERE OWN NUMBER Please? 🌝

Betty Gould is fantastic! She is so caring, sympathetic, and willing to work with you. I don't have insurance right now so I have to pay in cash. She was willing to work with what I could afford and still provide amazing care! She has a very kind nature about her that puts you as a patient, at ease. The staff at this office are very nice and the building is clean. It can be a tad hard to find. They also work with Smith's pharmacy down the street to help you get affordable medicine. Much cheaper than Wallgreens!

Amazing service i simply love this clinic. The wait isnt the best but a lot of these doctors amd nurses are doing pro bono work. And clinical hours. So you habe to understand that when you walk in the door they dont have to be there they choose to be there. The wait is a little on the slow side but they are busy andnthey try to emphasise the patient to physician relationship. So you get one on one time with them to speak voice concerns and talk everything through. I know at times time is so precious that we just dont want to wait around. But understand this i have no insuranve and everyone else in town turned me down for dental work; but.not these guys they did everything possible to make it happen the same day. Thanks so much everyone.

Love having the clinic right on the middle school campus it’s easy access if your child is sick and you don’t have to take them far from checking them out of school we’re having them get their check ups to get back into class sooner than later especially when you’re a working parent

if you make an appointment there I guarantee you you won't get the best experience you've ever had any doctor's office every shift over there treat you with respect and no one judges you of who what you look like really can talk what race you are we're past mistakes that you may have made and do do doctors do truly care about their patients and want to help them deal with whatever problem their faces and doing Drudge or discriminate I would recommend the doctors at Family Health Care to everybody they will definitely hope you do whatever kind of problem you were facing whether it be an illness prinjury and if they can't do it they will find somebody that can do it for you and help you in any kind of way that you need and if you have to go somewhere else to a different doctor they will find a doctor for you that picture insurance is close to you inconvenient and will help you with would you need help with they basically do it all for you they are just a great Clinic the best of it
