Who We Are
We value and appreciate every member of our team as integral to our mission to deliver exceptional care that improves the health of the patients we serve through prevention, treatment, and education. Our diverse and talented team members speak 28 different languages, and at least 40 staff are trained medical interpreters.
Our beautifully renovated location in a historic, renovated mill building at 161 Jackson St. in dowtown Lowell is home to our comprehensive primary and pediatric care services, in addition the Metta Center, Dental Care Center, Eye Care Center, Behavioral Health Services, Pharmacy, and more.
Lowell CHC services reach far beyond the exam room. We offer school-based health centers, Teen BLOCK youth programs, and outreach and health education in the community. We understand that we have a duty care for our entire community, not just our patients. The health center is deeply rooted in our community, as a trusted leader, collaborator, and committed advocate for health equity and justice.
In 2020 Lowell Community Health Center celebrated our 50th Anniversary of serving the communities of Greater Lowell.
In support of our mission and the values of equity and inclusion on which the Health Center was founded more than 50 years ago, our Board of Directors unanimously passed a resolution on June 17, 2020, declaring racism as a public health crisis.
Lowell Community Health Center’s mission is to provide caring, quality, and culturally competent health services to the people of Greater Lowell, regardless of their financial status; to reduce health disparities and enhance the health of the Greater Lowell community; and to empower each individual to maximize their overall well-being.
We are committed to inclusion for our employees. You will have a voice, and you will have impact, working as a team to assure the best possible care for our patients, and treating everyone with dignity and respect. We value and celebrate our diverse workforce. And we will work with you to strengthen your skills and outline career goals. Even when remote, we find ways to celebrate one another and the work we do, through all-staff meetings, our annual Health Center Week festivities, and cultural observances. We strive to assure a dynamic and supportive work environment where you can grow and prosper as part of our fteam, united by our mission, values, and focus on community.
