Patient and Community Outreach Services
Beyond treating illness, as a comprehensive family primary care provider, NCHC is committed to the continued well-being of our 14,000 patients and the health of our community.
As a convenience to our patients, prescriptions may be filled and renewed at a pharmacy inside our 120 Connecticut Avenue location. It is staffed by Norwalk Hospital pharmacists.
The Pharmacy at NCHC is open Monday through Friday, 9 am to 6 pm. Telephone: 203-899-0708 .
As a convenience to our patients, we have an on-site Lab where you can get blood tests ordered by your NCHC Primary Care Providerafter your visit. It is staffed for NCHC by Norwalk Hospital phlebotomists. Telephone: 203-899-1770 x2000.
NCHC welcomes everyone, regardless of ability to pay. We accept most insurance as well as Medicaid and Medicare and Access Health. If you do not have health coverage, or if your circumstances change, we’ll schedule an appointment for you with NCHC’s Eligibility Team. Eligibility Team members are also certified Access Health counselors. They will work with you to determine your discount payment so that you can get the care you need. Call 203-899-1770 to schedule an Eligibility Appointment.
