Community Health Center of Cape Cod continues to grow, and is expanding its Bourne location to meet the increasing demands for healthcare and a surge in patients. This expansion will increase access to primary care and behavioral health services, and will also add pharmacy and dental services in Bourne.  Currently, dental and pharmacy services are only available in the Health Center’s Mashpee location.

The Health Center serves more than 15,000 patients, including 1 in 15 residents in Bourne. Residents from the villages of Bourne, along with other off-Cape areas, such as Plymouth, Wareham, Caver and Rochester comprise the fastest growing population of newly-registered patients at the Health Center. This project will allow the Health Center to provide a better quality of care due to improved privacy and comfort, upgraded equipment and technology, providing increased access to integrated care to more patients.        

“It will be great to offer these services to our patients in Bourne,” Chief Operating Officer Katy O’Connell said. The Health Center’s Bourne facility is conveniently located for patients both on- and off-Cape at 123 Waterhouse Road, just a mile and a half from the Bourne Bridge. Community Health Center of Cape Cod also has offices in Mashpee and Falmouth.

Community Health Center of Cape Cod is a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center that provides access to health care for adults and children with MassHealth, Commonwealth Care, Medicare, private insurance or no insurance at all. Services include primary care, dental care, behavioral health, optometry, pharmacy and coordinated case management at locations Falmouth, Mashpee and Bourne.
