    The Squirrel Hill Health Center is a non-profit primary care doctor’s office that offers discounted services for uninsured patients. Most insurance is accepted, including Medicaid. Our OB/GYN doctor will see you from your first prenatal visit and will deliver your baby at Magee. Our other family practice doctors can then care for you and your new baby after your baby is born (and the rest of your family at anytime!)

    Located at 200 JHF Drive / Pittsburgh, PA 15217, just before the Homestead Grays Bridge
    Call 412-422-7442 for an appointment
