Community Health and Wellness Center of Greater Torrington, Inc.

This Federally-Qualified Health Center provides comprehensive primary medical, dental and behavioral health services to a rural, medically underserved part of northwestern Connecticut where there is also a shortage of health professionals. Since 2009, patient visits have increased by 160%, outstripping the facility’s capacity to provide the quality of care it strives to deliver.
MHIC’s New Markets financing is being used to build a 27,700 square-foot addition, renovate its existing 10,000 square-foot building, and purchase new medical, dental, office and computer equipment. The expansion and upgrade of its facilities will enable CHWC to expand its capacity by 80% (an additional 4,800 patients annually), obtain credentials to operate a diabetes center, add a pharmacy, and hire new full-time employees.
