It was established in 1993, received its IRS nonprofit designation in 1994, and was designated a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in 2002.

In fulfilling our mission, SGHC’s services target uninsured, undeserved residents living below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
SGHC’s vision is to provide strategically placed comprehensive sites linked to inpatient and specialty resources created to address unique health needs, SGHC operates seven in-scope sites in southeastern Louisiana on the eastern banks of the Mississippi River, five school-based sites and two community-based sites.
