NCHC was founded on October 2, 1986 as a Federally Qualified Health Center to address growing health disparities plaguing underserved populations in the City of Newark. As the population continued to increase in Newark and its surrounding cities, so did the need for access to quality healthcare. To meet this need we expanded our centers and services. Currently, we have 7 centers in Newark, East Orange, Irvington, and Orange that offer a full range of medical and dental services for children, adults, and seniors.
The mission of Newark Community Health Centers is to provide affordable, high quality, and accessible healthcare to the communities that we serve. As one of the largest providers of comprehensive primary care services for uninsured and medically underserved populations in one of the country’s most populated areas, our primary goal is to eliminate health disparities and help people live stronger, healthier, and happier lives.
