Primary Care Center

A National Leader

The work of Bridgeport Hospital’s Primary Care Center (PCC) is life altering and life
sustaining. The PCC establishes strong patient rapport and trust, lowers barriers and increases
patient access to care. Care Coordination and Chronic Care Management teams help decrease
hospitalizations and emergency department visits, reduce hospital length of stay and help
guide patients to a path of life-long wellness. The Coronavirus crisis created unprecedented
challenges for the underserved community. Generous donor support enabled us to offer
a high level of attention to our patients, and resulted in better outcomes from COVID-19
than reported in Fairfield County, the State of Connecticut and the nation. An important focus
is to improve behavioral health and provide preventative care. The Primary Care Center helps
remove healthcare disparities and factors that contribute to these inequities.
