Who We are
The mission of Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center (Kennedy Community Health) is to “help people live healthier lives.” We believe that everyone has a right to accessible, high quality, comprehensive, integrated and compassionate health care. We provide services to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. We accept most health insurance plans, including MassHealth (Medicaid) and Medicare; other public programs; and we offer assistance to individuals and families eligible to sign up for health insurance.
Our newest location, 605 Lincoln Street, houses our Worcester-based Behavioral Health and Optometry services. By the end of 2023, Dental and urgent care services will also be available at the site. The site is approximately 3/4 mile from our flagship site in Worcester.
