Casa de Salud was created in St. Louis, Missouri in 2010 to fill a major void in giving primary health care to new arrivals from other countries, especially uninsured Latinos. Casa’s founder and chairman, Bob Fox, enlisted the help of Saint Louis University, which provided the building within which Casa still operates today.


Since then, Casa has served thousands of immigrants, refugees, and others who are uninsured or under-insured. Today, Casa is respected as an important, established member of the St. Louis health care community.

We serve the underserved
