The H. Claude Hudson Comprehensive Health Center is a trusted source of high quality health care in the community, offering a full spectrum of primary and specialty care services to a diverse patient population. Located on the site of the former John Wesley Hospital, the present clinic opened in 1979 and was named after the civil rights pioneer, community leader, and prominent businessman H. Claude Hudson.
