Refugee Health Services

Health Means the World to Us!

Caring Health Center (CHC) is the largest Refugee Health Assessment program in Western Massachusetts. CHC provides culturally and linguistically-appropriate primary care services, health assessments, and referrals for refugees, asylees and other eligible immigrants. At CHC, adult and pediatric patients of the Refugee Health Assessment program will have the opportunity to be given access to an array of essential health services including:
  • Primary Care Services
  • Dental Services
  • Behavioral Health Screenings
  • Laboratory testing Immunizations
  • Health education
  • Information on community resources
  • School health entry forms
  • Health referral.
CHC’s Refugee Health Assessment program removes financial and administrative barriers that prevent newly arrived refugees from receiving early medical and diagnostic services. Refugee patients receive linkages to health care services and other needed resources, such as housing, food and transportation.
