For 50 years, Lowell Community Health Center has proudly provided access to high quality, affordable health care for children and adults of all ages — regardless of their ability to pay. 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.
Lowell Community Health Center is committed to delivering exceptional care that improves the health of the patients we serve through prevention, treatment, and education.
Lowell Community Health Center’s mission is to provide caring, quality, and culturally competent health services to the people of Greater Lowell, regardless of their financial status; to reduce health disparities and enhance the health of the Greater Lowell community; and to empower each individual to maximize their overall well-being.
Using the information collected through interviews, surveys, analysis of program data, and research, the Health Center developed a strategic plan to address changes within the health care field and community health trends. The highlights of that plan are shared below.
