Whole-Person Care Across the Lifespan

Wheeler expanded the scope of its federally qualified health center (FQHC)to meet the health care needs of individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders in Hartford, New Britain and surrounding communities.

Individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders are often reluctant to engage in primary care services and experience disparities in access to health care and health care outcomes. Many of the patients Wheeler currently serves from Hartford, New Britain and surrounding communities do not have a primary care physician, experience multiple co-morbid health disorders and are frequently seen in the emergency department. These patients have difficulty engaging in primary care through traditional channels. Their experience of stigma in health care settings and past exposure to trauma often create substantial barriers to care.


Medicaid, Medicare, and commercial health insurance welcome. No patient will be denied health care services due to an individual’s inability to pay for services. Wheeler 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) .
