Message from James W. Hunt, Jr., President Emeritus
Community health centers have provided a local source of health care, hope, and opportunity since their inception at Columbia Point, Dorchester in 1965. Serving in their multiple roles as primary care providers, social support agencies and economic engines, health centers strive to transform their underserved communities -- one patient at a time.
Promoting the importance of nutrition and exercise; helping a patient better manage their asthma; assisting residents with enrolling in health insurance programs; or providing employment and job training for local residents, health centers' roots run deep in the communities they serve.
This site is intended to be a resource for our member community health centers; local state, and federal agencies and commissions; policy and advocacy organizations and foundations which support access to health care for the medically underserved; and state residents who are in need of locally-accessible, high quality primary care.
We hope you will take the time to learn about the exciting work community health centers are undertaking to make sure that good health is right around the corner for all Massachusetts' residents.
