While the Bristol City Council voted to not approve the original plan for a combined health center and administrative headquarters, as we’d hoped and envisioned, our needs and commitment remain in Bristol. We continue to work with the City of Bristol on our plans and vision that our Family Health & Wellness Centers, and many administrative departments, would consolidate to a new, more accessible downtown site, which allows us to include services such as nutrition and wellness programs and impact other unmet primary care and behavioral health needs in the community.

Private giving remains vital to this vision, and our Board of Trustees has announced a four-year, $500,000 campaign to support construction. As of December 22, we are at $270,000 in pledges and gifts toward that goal.

The new center would ensure that all Wheeler services are located in one building, providing a better patient experience and for an array of on-site services and reach for at-risk community members who have limited access to care. We know, for instance, that nutrition is vital to overall health and reducing chronic disease, and we know that ensuring families have accessible care improves health outcomes for the whole family.

Bristol was Wheeler’s first community health center site in 2013, and today we serve thousands of Bristol residents at our centers, as well as students in every Bristol Public School. The future is bright in Bristol, and we’re committed to a more equitable, healthier future for everyone in the city!
