In his own words, “Everyone here is so friendly… I realize I’ve been blessed with a good life and choices … I like the fact that CHP provides the same high-quality care to people who don’t have insurance. CHP is very important to the community, and I feel good that my choice to come to the Health Center helps others.”
Tara’s primary care physician at CHP encouraged her to get a mammogram. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, her CHP doctor assisted her in finding a surgeon she could trust at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. Many women (and men) like Tara need medical help, but they find that private medical practices turn them away because they have state-sponsored health insurance. CHP, however, accept all patients regardless of insurance status.
In Tara’s own words, “I am grateful to be alive today, thanks to having access to quality health care… I can’t say enough about CHP’s amazing medical team.”
