Details: Charles River Community Health’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of the communities of Allston, Brighton, Waltham and surrounding areas by providing quality, comprehensive, coordinated care that is patient-centered, family friendly, and community focused. As a Patient Centered Medical Home, we are committed to providing patients with timely access to the right care, at the right place and at the right time, collaborating with other organizations to connect patients with a comprehensive range of services and provide continuity of care, and creating new community partnerships to meet the changing needs of patients and the community. We value caring for everyone with dignity, respect, and compassion, reducing cultural, financial and other barriers to care, and eliminating health care disparities for our patients. We also advocate for the needs of our patients, the community, and public health causes.
Details: Since 1985, our mission has remained the same: to provide or assure access to the highest quality health care for all homeless men, women and children in the greater Boston area. We believe it has been and continues to be medicine that matters: Vulnerable patients are kept alive and get help managing chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and cancer; Dedicated clinical and non-clinical staff share their passion for a vibrant mission and support each other in bringing the mission alive; Generous donors find a fulfilling way to respond to the feelings of helplessness that come with concern for those on the street; Shelter partners benefit from BHCHP's medical expertise while focusing on their core mission, avoiding wasteful duplication of services; Boston's many hospitals can depend on BHCHP as an alternative to the emergency room as well as a safe discharge location for medically vulnerable patients. BHCHP's targeted, compassionate management of limited resources yields everyday successes that are a living tribute to the ideals of a just society.

Details: The Dimock Center’s long history in the community has enabled us to grow and develop with this community in mind. It has strengthened us, and allowed our Health Center to become a dynamic, thriving community resource, powered by physicians, nurses, health educators and nurse practitioners who are as caring as they are accomplished.
Details: For more than 80 years, we have provided services that take care of the whole “you." Think of Whittier as a one-stop shop where you can come for your primary care, wellness programs, eye and dental care, and behavioral health services. Urgent care is available whenever the Clinic is open and pediatric patients will always be seen - even without an appointment.
Details: South Boston Community Health Center launched a new primary care practice at 505 Congress Street. South Boston Health/Seaport is the first major health care provider located in the ever expanding seaport district. Located on the street level of Waterside Place at 505 Congress Street, SBH/Seaport offers traditional primary care with a strong wellness component offering integrative medicine. In addition to extended hours and a centralized location, South Boston Health has designed the appointment system so patients can be seen in 24-48 hours after requesting a regular appointment - and same day if it's a sick visit. We accepts all major insurance plans and we serve all patients - regardless of the ability to pay. You will never be turned away if you are unable to afford essential services. We offer discounts on services based on patient family size and household family income levels. We also offer assistance to patients who would like to sign up for low cost or no cost health insurance. South Boston Health/Seaport is staffed with primary care providers who can see both adults and children.
