Kennedy CHC Launches Optometry Practice in Framingham, MA

Collaboration with MCPHS University will Open Access to
Vision Care for Kennedy CHC Patients in MetroWest

The Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center (Kennedy CHC) announces that it has opened an optometry practice at 72 Union Street, Framingham, Massachusetts. Through a partnership with the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS University), Kennedy CHC will now be able to offer vision care services to its patients living in the greater MetroWest area.

Currently, Kennedy CHC patients have to travel to Worcester to receive optometry services at the Health Center’s flagship medical facility. Through a partnership with MCPHS University, students and preceptors associated with the University’s Doctor of Optometry program will now be available in Framingham to see Kennedy CHC patients in need of vision care and services.  The addition of vision care will help round out the other medical, behavioral and dental services that Kennedy CHC is already providing to the MetroWest community.

“We are excited to open up this new optometry practice in Framingham,” states Toni G. McGuire, President and CEO of Kennedy CHC. “By working collaboratively with MCHPS, our patients in the greater MetroWest area will finally have access to vision care right in their own community, a much needed service in this region.”

Headquartered in Worcester, Massachusetts, Kennedy CHC operates medical and dental facilities in Framingham and a medical facility in Milford, which serves both the Worcester and MetroWest communities.   Patients who receive care through one of Kennedy CHC’s medical sites are able to access vision care at the new Framingham optometry practice.
