A Service of Keystone Health
Keystone Health is a public, non-profit organization employing more than 400 caring and compassionate physicians, nurses and staff members who provide quality health care to individuals and families with and without health insurance.
Co-founded in 1986 by Joanne Cochran, president/CEO, Keystone Health operates as a network of primary care sites – Keystone Family Medicine, Keystone Behavioral Health, Keystone Internal Medicine, Keystone Dental Care, Keystone Women’s Care, Keystone Pediatrics, and Keystone Urgent Care – as well as a pharmacy in Chambersburg, PA. Keystone Health also offers primary care services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers at locations across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Keystone Health improves the health and quality of life of the people and communities we serve.
We do this by:
- providing quality, compassionate primary medical, dental, behavioral and social services to anyone, especially those who need it most;
- coordinating care with other providers to provide a full range of services our patients need;
- promoting and supporting healthy lifestyles;
- collaborating with others to promote affordable access and breaking down language and cultural barriers; and
- advocating for our patients and the medically underserved.
As we continue to work toward increasing access to health care for the uninsured and underserved, we are also faced with understanding patient needs that go well beyond basic primary health care. Differing cultures, varied languages, and other barriers prevent many people from seeking medical care that could promote a healthier lifestyle and result in improved health status. By recognizing such needs, Keystone has made it a part of its mission to adapt and meet the requirements of special populations, offering a system of health care delivery that ensures primary health care for all, regardless of special circumstances.
Keystone is reaching out to immigrants, migrant farmworkers, homeless people, at-risk children, the frail elderly, residents of public housing, a broad range of racial, ethnic and language groups, and those at risk for HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, and other chronic and catastrophic diseases.
