Norwalk Community Health Center (NCHC) is an independent Federally Qualified Health Center funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Located in a 24,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art medical facility at 120 Connecticut Ave., Norwalk, NCHC offers a full range of primary care medical services to any Norwalk resident regardless of ability to pay.
Medical services include:
- Adult internal medicine
- Endocrinology specialty clinic
- Infectious diseases specialty clinic
NCHC’s medical staff consists of board-certified or board-eligible physicians, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and internal medicine residents in training with the Norwalk Hospital Internal Medicine Residency. These residents work side-by-side with NCHC physicians. All clinical staff are supervised by NCHC’s chief medical officer, who is responsible for clinical quality.
NCHC uses state-of-the-art electronic medical records (EMR) throughout its departments to ensure high-quality care. Patients’ lab results are transmitted electronically from Norwalk Hospital directly to NCHC patients’ records, helping to ensure the accuracy and speed with which NCHC receives these results. Pharmacy services are provided onsite at NCHC. A new electronic prescribing system, in conjunction with Norwalk Hospital’s Pharmacy Services, provides enhanced quality of care and patient safety. Patients are seen by appointment, usually within one or two days of calling. Every effort is made to schedule same-day appointments for patients with urgent care needs. Patients can make an appointment by calling 203-899-1770.
