CHC is building a world class primary health care system, that is committed to caring for special populations, and that is focused on improving health outcomes for our patients as well as building healthy communities.
Since 1972, CHC has been one of the leading health-care providers in the state of Connecticut, providing comprehensive primary care services in medicine, dentistry, and behavioral health. The CHC Programs are available to all, but have a special commitment to the uninsured, underinsured, and special populations such as patients with HIV/AIDS. CHC is a statewide, independent, private non-profit organization. Last year, we provided high-quality medical, dental and behavioral health services to patients living in nearly every Connecticut city and town. With 130,000 active patients, CHC, Inc. is the health care home that works to keep our patients--and our communities--healthy. We incorporate prevention and health promotion, treatment of illness, and management of chronic disease--often all during the same visit. But CHC goes beyond the traditional health services to bring care wherever you are, using innovative service delivery models and state of the art technology. Health care is a right, not a privilege.
