We stand for equity and justice for ALL

Lake Superior Community Health Center (LSCHC) stands for equity and justice for ALL. Born out of the civil rights and social justice movement of the 1960s, Community Health Centers like LSCHC serve as advocates for quality care and health equity for everyone in the communities we serve. For nearly 50 years, LSCHC has advanced this important cause by maintaining and promoting culturally competent values and practices for every one of our remarkable patients and employees.

We prioritize the provision of respectful, inclusive and affirmative care in our region. We recognize that each of us has unique needs requiring equally unique responses.  That’s why we maintain the range of experience and expertise necessary to bring health, hope, and peace of mind to all of our patients - no matter their age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, insurance status or ability to pay.

From the foundational roots of the movement we represent, we are committed to communicating and acting with knowledge and understanding about the distinct health concerns and barriers to care we each face. Because from top to bottom we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to be healthy.

Opportunity to Serve on LSCHC's Board of Directors

Lake Superior Community Health Center (LSCHC) seeks 2-3 new members to join our Board of Directors. LSCHC is governed by a volunteer board, the majority of which are also patients at our clinics. As a Federally Qualified Health Care Center, LSCHC receives funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). In order to best serve our community and understand patient experience, it is the belief of HRSA and LSCHC that the Board of Directors should be reflective of the clinic’s patient panel. In order for LSCHC to meet this goal, we are currently seeking males between the ages of 18 – 64 to join our Board. In addition, we are seeking applicants with experience in the following areas:


  • Construction Management
  • Property Management
  • Building Engineering
  • Finance
  • General Business
  • Architecture

The mission of Lake Superior Community Health Center is Improving Access to Quality Health Care for All. In 2017, LSCHC served over 11,000 patients at our clinic locations in Duluth, MN and Superior, WI. We offer integrated services in the following areas: Medical, Dental, Behavioral Health, Substance Abuse Treatment, and Health Care Access.


Lake Superior Community Health Center complies with applicable federal civil rights laws, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disabilities, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Deputy Secretary's View: Opioids battle can be won, beginning in Minnesota and in Duluth

We were honored to host HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan last month and so glad our visit made an impact. In the Deputy Secretary's words: "I was particularly encouraged visiting Duluth's Lake Superior Health Clinic and learning how grants from the Health Resources and Services Administration at HHS are aiding in the clinic's vital mission of care. My message that day was clear: HHS stands ready to assist local heroes helping to end this epidemic in their communities. We are proud to offer substance abuse treatment services, including medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction. Read the opinion piece here:
