Little Rivers Health Care is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and Federally Qualified Health Center funded in part through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and generous community support. Little Rivers Health Care is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n). Our service area includes the Vermont towns of Bradford, Chelsea, Corinth, Fairlee, Groton, Newbury, Norwich, Orange, Ryegate, Strafford, Thetford, Topsham, Tunbridge, Vershire, Washington, West Fairlee, and our neighboring “border” towns in New Hampshire.

Our mission is to provide respectful, comprehensive primary health care for all residents in our region, regardless of their ability to pay. We offer quality health care services to everyone. In the spirit of community, we make efforts to reach out and welcome those who need health services, but may have insufficient means to access them. We commit ourselves to continually reduce the burden of illness, injury, and disability, and to improve the health and quality of life of those for whom we care.

Heeding the call to improve the quality of health care services throughout the country, we believe that all health care organizations should pursue six major aims; specifically, that health care should be safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, cost-efficient, and equitable.

Our services always focus on the patient as the decision-maker and person in charge of his/her health care. We listen. We give you understandable information, based on our awareness of the best scientific knowledge. We foster long-term, healing relationships between patients and providers, and are proud that all of our clinics have met national quality standards, to be certified as NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Homes.
