Welcome to the website of HealthReach Community Health Centers. We provide acute, chronic and preventive medical services to 28,000 Maine residents and visitors each year. We are part of the United States Public Health system where 1,400 grantees provides primary care to 28 million Americans in over 11,000 Community Health Centers (CHCs) sites spread across 50 states.

Directed by boards with majority consumer membership, CHCs focus on meeting the basic health care needs of individual communities. We provide treatment regardless of income or insurance coverage. Since the early 1960s, CHCs have worked closely with local people to identify unmet health care needs and to help meet those challenges. The original intent of the health center movement was and continues to be to provide access to quality health services. Our centers serve as a gateway to health services by providing geographic access to patients (many of the HealthReach practices are located in rural areas where primary care services are not readily available) and financial access to health services for patients through our Affordable Care Program.

We opened our first center in Bingham, Maine in 1975. Since then we have expanded health care access across many Central and Western Maine communities through 11 health centers, two dental centers and the integration of behavioral health services across our sites. With the integration of primary care, dental and behavioral health services, our health care team will be able to more fully address the needs of our patients. In addition, HealthReach clinicians are helping to address the opioid epidemic by providing medication assisted treatment at nine of our locations. At HealthReach, we are proud of our medical, dental, and behavioral health providers and the quality of care they deliver. Our experienced family practitioners focus on preventive care and developing partnerships with patients that enhance their overall health status. We serve patients from birth through retirement and beyond.

I encourage you to explore our website and visit frequently. Take a look at our press releases and Community Report. Learn about us and the services we make available in your community. Let us become one of your resources for wellness, health care, and linkage to other community and state services.

Brenda Stevens, Board Chair

It is with great pleasure, as chair of the Governing Board of Directors for the HealthReach Community Health Centers, I join CEO Connie Coggins in welcoming you to the HealthReach Website.

As a life long resident of Western Maine with four decades of work in public education, I know firsthand the critical importance that accessible, affordable healthcare plays in rural communities. Many of my extended family members access HealthReach services. The wide variety of services close to our respective homes has been and continue to be invaluable.

The HealthReach Board of Directors is a diverse, all-volunteer board representing the Central and Western Maine rural communities HealthReach sites serve. The board’s function is to provide oversight and support for the HealthReach collective mission: To provide high-quality, affordable, patient-centered healthcare in the medically underserved communities of Central and Western Maine.

Collaborative teams of medical professionals staff each of our eleven HealthReach sites. These teams are comprised of primary care clinicians, nurses, and social workers who, alongside administrative and support staff, offer a wide variety of high quality health care for all ages.

Central to the HealthReach mission is providing affordable healthcare to all its patients. In support of this important tenet, each HealthReach site is staffed with a HealthReach Connector to serve patients in need of our sliding fee program or assistance accessing other healthcare benefits they may require.

On behalf of the board, I invite you to explore the HealthReach Website and consider what partnering with one of our eleven HealthReach sites has to offer you and your family.
