HealthReach Community Health Centers is a system of eleven Federally Qualified Health Centers in Central and Western Maine. A private, non-profit organization founded in 1975, HealthReach is funded by patient fees, grants, and individual donations. We provide primary care services for the whole family to nearly 25,000 Maine residents and travelers each year - regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. We strive to be the provider, employer and healthcare partner of choice in each of the communities we serve.

Great Family Health Care

Our healthcare providers offer outpatient primary care and preventive services to people of all ages. All of our practices have achieved National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition and offer accessible, high quality healthcare with integrated behavioral health services focused on the patient’s care experience. HealthReach clinicians treat the “whole person” - not just physical symptoms, and form partnerships with their patients, encouraging them to take an active role in their care.


HealthReach services are available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. We accept Medicare, MaineCare (Medicaid) and private insurance. Through funding from the U.S. Bureau of Primary Health Care, we also offer a sliding fee program to uninsured and underinsured residents to assist with the cost of health center services. In addition, our Connectors offer application assistance for programs that help with the cost of healthcare and medications including the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Close to Home

HealthReach serves families in over 80 rural communities, primarily in Androscoggin, Franklin, Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Oxford, Sagadahoc, Somerset, and Waldo counties. 25,418 people chose us for their primary care source in 2020, totaling 91,006 visits. We work closely with four hospitals located in our service areas: Franklin Memorial Hospital (Farmington), MaineGeneral Medical Center-Alfond Center for Health (Augusta), Redington-Fairview General Hospital (Skowhegan) and Stephens Memorial Hospital (Norway).
