In 1976 a group of active, civic-minded individuals in the Bridgeport area came together to create a community health center dedicated to the health of their neighborhood. With determination, and federal and city funding, they opened a health center just one year later. Bridgeport Community Health Center has continued to grow with a new main site and numerous satellite clinics.

Bridgeport Community Health Center is a leading provider of comprehensive integrated health and human services in Bridgeport, Stratford and Stamford. The Center provides comprehensive outpatient health care for the entire family from prenatal through geriatric services.

All Health Center physicians are on staff at Bridgeport and Stamford Hospitals. Trained counselors can help you if you have family, substance abuse, mental health or other concerns. We are glad to assist you in completing applications for SAGA, Medicaid or other programs.

All Bridgeport Community Health Center physicians have staff privileges at Bridgeport Hospital. The Center is actively involved in the health care community with Medical Director Dr. Richard Torres serving as Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale University School of Medicine and Nursing and Fairfield University. Our staff comprises internal medicine physicians, pediatricians, physician assistants, a certified nurse midwife, psychologists, social workers, dentists and dental hygienists who provide comprehensive health care.

Bridgeport Community Health Center provides health care to more than 12,000 people. Serving a predominantly Latino population, the Center focuses on culturally appropriate care for a population that would otherwise have difficulty accessing the health care system. The patient population at Bridgeport Community Health Center is 80% Latino, 15% Black or African-American and 5% White or other.

Among the special services offered by Bridgeport Community Health Center are a comprehensive initiative for children at risk, an on-site perinatologist, radiology, and laboratory at the East Main Street site.
