Asian Health Services Asian Health Services (AHS) is a Federally Qualified Health Center whose mission is to address the unmet health care needs of the underserved in Oakland, California. Formed in 1974 as a “one room” clinic, AHS today offers a continuum of health services, including primary, perinatal, and geriatric care, as well as dental and mental health services. The Asian Health Services (AHS) project was the rehabilitation of a three-story, 15,000 square-foot restaurant building into a community health center for primarily low-income Asian and Pacific Islanders. Located in the heart of Oakland’s Chinatown, the new health center has 20 exam rooms and provides approximately 39,000 visits to nearly 10,000 individual patients annually. The new health center increased AHS’ capacity by more than 30 percent to address the growing demand for comprehensive primary care services.
