Community Health Centers opens in Essex

ESSEX — The Community Health Centers (CHC) has opened an additional practice in Essex as their ninth location.

Essex has the highest number of CHC patients, second only to Burlington, making the Junction a perfect fit for CHC’s newest location.

Located just outside the five corners, this new practice will allow residents of Essex to conveniently access the many benefits offered by Federally Qualified Health Centers, such as financial assistance through a Sliding-Fee Scale, interpreter services, prescription assistance, nutrition services, and connection to counseling and psychiatry.

“Adding a new location is such an appropriate way to celebrate our 50th year,” said CHCB CEO Jeff McKee. “Our mission is to provide health care to ALL, and this increased access for Essex residents and the surrounding areas is exactly how we live that mission.”

This particular project received $830,803 from the Health Resources and Services Administration ARP-Capital funding opportunity to help with external renovations to the Brickyard building.

Community Health Centers – Essex is accepting patients.

Individuals are welcome to call (802) 404-1350 to become a new patient and schedule an appointment.

For 50 years, the Community Health Centers have provided quality health care for Vermonters regardless of financial or insurance status.

One of 12 Federally Qualified Health Centers in the state, CHC has nine locations and is one of the largest nonprofit family health and dental practices in Chittenden and Grand Isle counties.
