records have been purchased by Spectrum Health Systems.
If you are seeing Dr. Sewell or one of the other providers
at Spectrum's locations, you don't need to do anything. If
you are seeing one of the other doctors, you will have to
request your medical records be transferred. Every
effort will be made to make sure patients and their
providers continue to have access to their health records. Click here for
information on transferring your records.
Please be assured that we want to continue to care for all
our patients. You are wanted, very much, perhaps too
much. Patients will have more choices of providers,
not fewer, once the dust has settled. We apologize for the
inconvenience during our troubles.

Health Associates of South Philadelphia is now Urban Health Initiatives
As Health Associates of South Philadelphia, we've been providing high-quality medical care to a diverse population at 1408 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, since 1992. Prior to that, most of our providers were part of Lomax Health Systems at the Point Breeze and Grays Ferry locations.
However, in 2011 we took on a new name and a new mission. Urban Health Initiatives is a Federally Qualified Health Center "look-alike" office, offering services to uninsured patients for a sliding-fee scale.
We still offer the same appointment-based care, and we are expanding our information technology capabilities to improve quality of care and patient access.
We look forward to announcing new services and locations in the future!
