Building a Stronger and Healthier Community

Great communities are made up of  happy and healthy people.

The Parker Family Health Center (PFHC) brings together medical and other volunteers to provide healthcare services to eligible Monmouth County residents who do not have medical insurance or the ability to pay for care. 

Our patients receive exceptional quality care and the same dignity and confidentiality they would expect from any healthcare provider.

PATIENT visits SINCE ITS FOUNDING

The story of the Parker Family Health Center reaches across generations.

Dr. James Parker, Sr. came to Red Bank during the influenza epidemic of 1919. Because African American physicians were not allowed hospital privileges at the time, Dr. Parker treated all his patients at home. 

His son, Dr. James Parker, Jr. teamed up with his father in 1947.  He opened the doors to his patients as early as 5:00am so they wouldn't miss a day of work. When Dr. Parker Jr. retired in the late 1990's, a local oncologist, Dr. Eugene Cheslock, also recently retired, saw the extensive need for healthcare accessibility in the community and decided to start a second career as founder and developer of  the Parker Family Health Center, named appropriately after the two Dr. James Parkers.
