Medical CareEdward M. Kennedy Community Health Center utilizes a family practice model of care to provide primary medical care to our patients. A dedicated interdisciplinary team, comprised of the medical provider, nurse, nutritionist and other specialists, works together with patients to manage their health, injuries, illnesses, and chronic diseases. The self management model allows patients to be in charge of setting their goals with the support of a professional health care team. Primary care services include preventive care, routine checkups, immunizations, and management of acute and chronic illnesses.
Our specialized Chronic Disease Program teams focus on the following chronic diseases: asthma, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, depression and HIV/AIDS. And our providers and certified family planning counselors offer counseling on different birth control methods. Patients may choose among methods such as oral contraceptive pills, DepoProvera, IUD, diaphragm, male and female condoms, the birth control patch, etc., and can have their prescriptions filled at low cost at our onsite pharmacy.
Urgent care is also available for health center patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to a hospital emergency room.
Nutrition counseling is available to all children and adults who receive primary medical care at the Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center. Our nutritionists have expertise in prenatal nutrition, breastfeeding support, pediatric nutrition, eating disorders and weight management, as well as chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, and HIV/AIDS. WIC services are also available on site.
We are pleased to offer a UMass laboratory at our Worcester and Framingham locations. The lab performs a wide range of testing and services for our patients, including phlebotomy, hematology, chemistry, immunochemistry, serology, and urinalysis
