Company Description:

Community Health Services, Inc. (CHS) is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) federally qualified health center (FQHC) located in Hartford a vibrant North End community. The largest community health center in Hartford, CHS is also the second oldest health center in the state of Connecticut. Since its establishment in 1970, CHS has grown from its humble beginnings in the office of Dr. Evans Daniels Jr., to the current three story state of the art medical facility at 500 Albany Avenue.

CHS serves a patient-base of almost 17,000 individuals and accommodates over 90,000 patient visits each year. As a federally qualified health center (FQHC), CHS is committed to caring for each person who enters our doors, regardless of their income or ability to pay for services and whether or not they have insurance. While the majority of those CHS serves live in our primary service area of Hartford's North End community, CHS is the medical home of residents throughout the Greater Hartford area.

CHS is not a clinic. We are a community health center where you can bring your entire family, and receive the same close, personal care and medical expertise you would expect from a private practice or hospital. CHS is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations. While the Joint Commission sets the standards for the care in hospitals, accreditation is not required for community health centers. CHS undertook this effort as part of our commitment to excellence in our clinical practices, and providing every patient the quality of care they deserve.
