CHS was founded in 1970 at 1023 Albany Avenue by
Dr. Evans Howard Daniels Jr.
Community Health Services, Inc. (CHS) is a private nonprofit (501 (c)3) federally qualified health center (FQHC) with two locations in the Greater Hartford area. CHS is the second oldest health center in the state of Connecticut. CHS started as a very organic institution in 1970, as a result of Dr. Evans Daniels Jr's private medical practice that saw an overwhelming need in the Hartford community. Under Dr. Daniels guidance for 30 years, CHS grew and expanded to our current three story state of the art medical facility at 500 Albany Avenue, Hartford, CT. Just like Dr. Daniels vision of addressing community needs, we have recently opened a satellite office in 2013 to include additional primary care services at 503 Windsor Avenue, Unit 511 in Windsor, CT. With hopes of continually growing, we are looking forward to expanding services at both our main site and satellite location!
Since 2003, CHS has continuously been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations. This accreditation is representative of our commitment to excellence in our clinical practices and providing every patient the quality of care they deserve. We serve a patient-base of almost 17,000 individuals and accommodate over 77,000 patient visits each year. As a FQHC, we are committed to caring for each individual who enters our doors, regardless of their income and whether or not they have insurance. At CHS, you can bring your entire family, and receive the same close, personal care and medical expertise you would expect from a private practice or hospital. While 80% of our patients live in Hartford, we have become the medical home of choice for residents who choose to travel throughout the state to come use our services!
