Founded on February 25, 2002, we have 19 years of experience as the only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) serving low income, underinsured, uninsured, publicly housed, and homeless populations in 35 cities and towns in North Central Massachusetts.
In response to a Community Needs Assessment, CHC opened on February 25, 2002 as one primary care practice in Fitchburg providing medical services to the underserved. Since then our Fitchburg location has blossomed to include a variety of services within a LEED-certified facility constructed and opened in 2014.
Based on the need of surrounding communities, CHC opened a facility in Gardner in 2005 and one in Leominster in 2008.
In 2008, CHC organized a mobile unit to provide direct care to our homeless population. This mobile unit supported such a great community need that it became CHC’s second permanent site in Fitchburg in 2017 at 130 Water Street in Fitchburg - a location with access to public transportation and proximity to other business that fulfill basic needs to best support its primary patient population.
