Providing comprehensive, integrated primary health care services for all to improve the health and wellbeing of our patients and the Maine communities we serve.
Your Community Health Center
Penobscot Community Health Care is a non-profit organization governed by a board of community volunteers, incorporated in 1997. We are passionate about our Mission at PCHC – We provide comprehensive, integrated primary health care services for all to improve the health and wellbeing of our patients and the Maine communities we serve. Our vision for success is a community in which everyone has access to quality, cost effective health care, where people are empowered to advocate for their personal goals and needs and are supported by community based resources, and where health encompasses physical and emotional wellness, personal dignity and a sense of belonging.
Focusing on the health of every patient, Penobscot Community Health Care offers a medical home with access to many health services in addition to primary health care, such as dental, integrated mental health, pharmacy, physical therapy, case management, health and nutrition education, chronic disease management, speech and audiology services, and many medical specialists.
What is a Community Health Center?
PCHC’s goal is to provide access to affordable, quality, health care for all, keeping both the insured and uninsured healthy, by focusing on prevention and health care management rather than a reliance on emergency room and inpatient services when sick.
We are committed to transforming the healthcare system because this will dramatically improve the health and reduce health costs for you, your family, and your community.
This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employer under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n). PCHC is a FTCA Deemed Facility.
