About Us

 

Mission
Tepeyac Family Center provides patients with access to excellent medical care faithful to both the social justice and sanctity of life teachings of the Catholic Church as articulated by Saint John Paul II in his Theology of the Body.  We believe that medicine is a relationship.  Tepeyac serves the insured alongside the uninsured, those experiencing crisis pregnancies alongside those seeking natural fertility methods, and mothers looking for a safe haven whether economically, spiritually, or both.  As a faith-based non-profit practice, Tepeyac's mission is to convey the healing presence of Christ through excellent medical care that treats the whole person and respects the consciences of physicians and patients.  We welcome patients of all faiths or none and treat them with sincere regard for the dignity and instrinsic worth of each person.  Please see our website at www.tepeyacfamilycenter.com for more information.

 

History
Tepeyac Family Center was founded as a private medical practice in 1994 by Dr. John Bruchalski and his wife Carolyn.  In 2005 Tepeyac became a non-profit charity wholly owned by Divine Mercy Care, a 501(c)(3) religious organization. Thanks to our supportive patients and donors, we have been able to grow Dr. Bruchalski's original practice to add 4 board certified OB/GYN physicians and a certified physician assistant.  Today we care for thousands of patients and deliver about 700 babies per year, about one third of which are born to mothers who are poor, underserved, or experiencing crisis pregnancies.
