Good Health is Contagious...
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Here at the Martin Luther King Health Center, we have provided quality health care, pharmacy & patient education services in the northwest Louisiana area since 1986.
Feel free to look around to learn more about our services and how you can take part in our mission.
The Mission of the Martin Luther King Health Center is to extend comprehensive primary healthcare and pharmacy services at no cost to uninsured or underinsured patients with chronic illness who otherwise often forgo routine medical care because of a lack of resources.

Martin Luther King Health Center & Pharmacy Celebrates National Health Center Week
The Martin Luther King Health Center & Pharmacy (MLK Health Center) is marking National Health Center Week 2014 along with our local FQHCs to help raise awareness about the needs that exist in our community for access to primary care and preventive health services for the uninsured and underinsured.
As the only charitable health center with an in-house pharmacy in the region, we serve an important role as a health care safety net for the most vulnerable members of our community. There are 44 million uninsured people in this nation and another 56 million who, although they may have health insurance, live in areas without doctors and basic health services. The MLK Health Center is proud to be one of the local health centers that is fostering a healthier community and generating a system of preventive medicine that patients use regularly to stay healthy and productive. Learn more about our activities during the week.
MLK Health Center is now on 865 Olive Street, Shreveport, LA 71104.
MLK Health Center was just recognized as one of only 145 nonprofits nationally on the 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit list in the Great Nonprofits program. The center is eligible for a chance at winning advertising dollars for online promotion, and possible attendance at the annual Tech for Social Good Event. You can click the icon and write a review of the center to help increase our chances.The program is similar to a people’s choice awards where volunteers, donors and people served by a nonprofit voted, reviewed and expressed their appreciation for the work of their selected nonprofit. MLK Health Center would like to thank everyone that made this possible and helped to bring the center to this level of recognition. Thank you for your support of good health in our community !
