Construction of three new facilities to help a FQHC serve more patients. Expected to increase existing patients to 18,000 with 65,000 individual existing patient visits per year. The health centers are in the following towns:
- Hartford: The acquisition and renovation of this 27,000-square-foot facility will make CHC the largest provider of pediatric medical, behavioral, and dental health services between New York and Boston. The site serves a community where pediatric hospitalization rates for chronic diseases and behavioral health are significantly higher than the national averages.
- Stamford: The rehabilitation of this 22,400-square-foot, three-story building will significantly expand comprehensive primary care services for a population that is often overlooked amidst wealthier surrounding communities. The services provided includes pediatrics, women’s health, behavioral health services, nutrition counseling, and chronic disease management.
- Middletown: A new 32,000-square-foot facility with state-of-the-art technology will not only house CHC support functions, but will also allow the Weitzman Institute to expand its programs in research, care delivery transformation, and education. Furthermore, the facility will accommodate a nurse practitioner residency program which has national reach to FQHCs and other populations in need throughout the country.
