Refugee Program


As a Participating Provider with Pennsylvania’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, Squirrel Hill Health Center (SHHC) completes the initial health screening for a large majority of newly arriving refugees in Pittsburgh. We also provide ongoing, integrated care for all of our patients, including those who came to us as newly arriving refugees, refugees who move to Pittsburgh from elsewhere, and a wide and diverse immigrant population.  Our services are available to all patients regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.  We work closely with local refugee resettlement agencies to orient newly arriving populations to health care in Pittsburgh, and with other social service agencies dedicated to supporting immigrants and internationals in our region.
