The Health Center has served the communities of greater Lowell since 1970 and has grown to include many specialty services in addition to comprehensive primary health care, dental services, and eye care.

Health Center patients may choose a primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or certified nurse midwife from our team of board-certified medical providers. Behavioral health services are integrated into the care provided at the Health Center. Patients are able to schedule visits with certified mental health professionals working at the Health Center. Our employees speak 28 different languages, and at least 40 staff are trained medical interpreters.
