Clinic Details: Kevin’s Community Center, Inc. (KCC) was founded in 2002 as a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization by Dr. and Mrs. Z. Michael Taweh in memory of their son, Kevin to address the health care crisis in Connecticut for uninsured and underinsured adult residents of Newtown, Bridgewater and Roxbury. At that time, Dr. Taweh led a community-wide, grassroots effort to found the clinic involving state and municipal government and the business, medical, financial, nonprofit and religious sectors and the citizens who had a stake in the well-being of our community. To date we have provided more than 5,000 patient visits and have delivered more than $2,500,000 in free medical care including specialty care referrals. Through the 2008 collapse of the financial markets, KCC’s patient visits soared to 800-900 annually by 2010, serving on average 120 new patient visits per year for those who had lost their health care coverage. As the complexion and complexity of our country’s healthcare system continues to change and evolve, KCC is committed to adapting in order to continue to serve the health care needs of our residents who fall in the gaps and cannot afford proper coverage. We work in collaboration with other community resources in seeing to the overall wellness of our patients. Today, we remain the primary health care provider for some 1,000 local patients. In January 2017, after 15 years of steady fundraising and continuous monitoring of the needs of our community, we moved into our newly-acquired medical building at 25 Commerce Road, Newtown, CT where we constructed a modest but modern clinic space, now fully operational. We are in the process of fundraising to fit-out the remaining 3,500 square feet of the building as community outreach and program space. This will enable us to expand and deepen our offerings to our patients and strengthen collaboration with our vibrant wellness community for the benefit of our beloved Newtown residents.
