Since 1975, the health center has been providing quality healthcare and prevention services to our local families. Through our connection with HealthReach Community Health Centers, a system of eleven practices and the dedication of the Bingham Health Council, our community board, we attract high quality professional staff and maintain a comfortable environment for our patients of all ages.

Each year, the health and dental centers serve over 1,200 people from Bingham, Caratunk, Embden, Moscow, Pleasant Ridge, Solon, The Forks, West Forks, and surrounding towns. Our providers maintain strong collegial relationships with Redington Fairview General Hospital, in Skowhegan where patients can obtain hospital services if needed.

The health center is located along the Kennebec River in Bingham. The scenic area attracts fisherman, hikers, river rafters, bird watchers and numerous other outdoor enthusiasts throughout the four seasons.
