Blackstone Valley Community Health Care (BVCHC) was formed in 1990 by the joining of smaller health clinics in Pawtucket and Central Falls, Rhode Island. Since that time BVCHC has expanded services and practice sites in Pawtucket and Central Falls, as well as a separate Dental facility in downtown Pawtucket.
Recognizing the needs of residents in Pawtucket, Central Falls and the surrounding areas, BVCHC now offers a medical home to patients of all ages. Services range from prenatal and women’s health care to pediatric, adolescent and adult preventative and acute care. Behavioral Health and Dental services are available to BVCHC registered medical and pediatric patients. Additional staff now includes case managers, diabetic and asthma educators.
In 2007 BVCHC eliminated paper records and converted to Electronic Medical and Dental Record systems as well as digital Radiology for Dental patients. BVCHC serves as the home and support center for a network of health centers advancing Health Information Technology in Rhode Island. BVCHC now provides more than 61,000 medical and dental patient visits per year to approximately 13,300 unique users.
Blackstone Valley Community Health Care is a FTCA-deemed facility.
Health is not simply the absence of sickness.
