The Matilda Theiss Health Center is a UPMC hospital-based clinic, owned and operated by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. This Center serves a primarily poor minority population. It is located in a neighborhood with a large proportion of public housing units. The Theiss Center is the only federally qualified health center within UPMC. Primary health care across the life span is provided and overseen by the faculty of the Department of Family Medicine. Full primary care services are offered to include periodic child and adult physical examinations, chronic disease screening and management, immunizations, health education, minor surgery, and obstetrical and gynecological care. The Center also provides dental care, Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and a medication dispensing service. A variety of social, counseling, and health promotion services, which include a seniors' health group, are provided by a licensed social worker. The Health Center is a teaching site for first- and third-year medical students of the University of Pittsburgh, as well as St. Margaret's Family Medicine residents fulfilling their community health rotations.
