Welcome to the Community Health Center of New London

Established in 1992: CHC of New London serves residents of the city of New London and the surrounding towns of New London County, the shoreline, and bordering towns of Rhode Island. It is the hub for community based and school health services.

CHC of New London started in the summer of 1992 in partnership with Lawrence and Memorial Hospital and the city, taking over a city-run clinic that had been in existence since 1970. The partnership then won state and federal support in subsequent months.
