Family Medicine Residency Program

Bloomfield-Garfield Center

The Bloomfield/Garfield Family Health Center was established in 1984 and cares for over 10,000 patients annually. Its present case mix is about 20 percent pediatrics and adolescents, 72 percent adult, and 8 percent geriatrics.

This facility has ten exam rooms, an on-site lab, radiology suite, a well-lit, very pleasant reception area, staff lounge, two procedure rooms, a precepting/conference area, and off-street parking. Residents helped design this facility for improved ambience, communication, and efficiency. There has been steady growth since a 2008 relocation to a spacious and environmentally friendly facility.

Bloomfield/Garfield Family Health Center is home base for our innovative School Health Program, which provides comprehensive physicals, health screening and health education to local elementary schools. Bloomfield/Garfield and nearby East Liberty are largely underserved inner city communities with approximately 38,800 residents. This area is home for many single parent families, a large African-American population, and a growing Vietnamese and international community. Patients also reside in adjoining communities including the university-dominated Oakland area.
