Community Health Services, Inc. (CHS) is a private nonprofit (501 (c)3) federally qualified health center (FQHC) with two locations in the Greater Hartford area. CHS is the second oldest health center in the state of Connecticut. Since its establishment in 1970, CHS has grown from its humble beginnings in the office of Dr. Evans Daniels Jr., to the current three story state of the art main medical facility at 500 Albany Avenue. A satellite site, at 503 Windsor Avenue in Windsor was opened in 2013.
CHS serves a patient-base of almost 17,000 individuals and accommodates over 77,000 patient visits each year. As a federally qualified health center (FQHC), CHS is committed to caring for each person who enters our doors, regardless of their income or ability to pay for services and whether or not they have insurance. While 80% of those CHS serves live in our primary service area of the City of Hartford, CHS is the medical home of choice for residents throughout the Greater Hartford area.
CHS is a federally qualified community health center where you can bring your entire family, and receive the same close, personal care and medical expertise you would expect from a private practice or hospital. CHS is continuously accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations since 2003. This accreditation is representative of our commitment to excellence in our clinical practices, and providing every patient the quality of care they deserve. – less
