December 1, 2022
Western Wayne Family Health Centers (WWFHC) was established in 2005 and is governed by a volunteer board of directors, which is comprised of at least 51% of people who use the center for health care services. After over a decade of leadership by outgoing chair Noah "Pete" Bergeron of Romulus, there is a new chair of the board. Taking the role is Bishop Walter Starghill Jr, who has been on the board since 2008, and is from Inkster. Other officers of the board include Vice Chair Pastor Velma Jean Overman, Secretary Melissa Stellini and Treasurer Anita Goree.
Bishop Starghill is the Pastor and Founder of Face to Face Outreach Ministry in Inkster and is the Presiding Prelate Bishop of Face to Face and its Church Fellowship International and the Chairman of the Board of the Not-for-profit organization, Equip For Life. He is also a past president of the Western Wayne Chapter of the NAACP.
Western Wayne Family Health Centers (WWFHC) operates 5 community health center locations in the downriver and Western Wayne areas. Four full service health centers are in Inkster, Taylor, Lincoln Park and Dearborn, with a school based site inside the Ecorse Community School district. WWFHC offers primary health care for adults and children, OB/GYN, dental, behavioral health, psychiatry and substance abuse disorder treatment for people with and without health insurance.
WWFHC offers services to people with and without health insurance, and accepts most insurance plans, including all state Medicaid and Healthy Michigan plans. For those without coverage, the centers have a sliding fee scale based on income for the cost of services. Call 313-561-5100 or go to http://www.WWFHC.org or Facebook for more information.
