Dr. Jorge Prieto Health Center

2424 South Pulaski Road
Chicago, IL 60623


The Dr. Jorge Prieto Family Health Center was founded by Dr. Jorge Prieto in 1972 as South Lawndale Health Center in the primarily Mexican-American neighborhood of Little Village. The area was originally Bohemian and there are still elderly residents of Eastern European origin. However, the vast majority of the populationis still from Mexico, particularly the south-central Mexican states of Michoacan, Durango, Jalisco and Guanajuato. Many of these immigrants come from smaller, agriculturally based communities in Mexico, and the difficulties of adjusting to life in the United states often stems more from an unfamiliarity with inner-city urban life.
