Family & Community Care waiting room

A newly-renovated, full-service Family Medicine clinic

Family & Community Care is the first clinic to open at Cheshire Medical Center's new West Campus on Maple Avenue. It is fully integrated with the rest of the Medical Center and the larger Dartmouth Health system, of which Cheshire is a member. We will continue to use the same electronic medical record and myDH, patient registration process, and billing department.

The new clinic has onsite laboratory facilities and integrated behavioral health services.

Primary Care services at Family & Community Care

Our services at Family & Community Care include medical care for patients and families of all ages, such as:

  • Acute, episodic illness care (cold symptoms, strep throat, minor injuries) for infants, children, and adults
  • Annual physicals (preventive medicine) for infants, children, and adults
  • Chronic disease care (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or depression)
  • Gender-affirming healthcare
  • Reproductive healthcare and family planning
  • Adolescent and young adult care
  • Primary care sports medicine
  • Outpatient procedures in dermatology, gynecology, and sports medicine with the ability to refer patients to specialty services when appropriate

Since this is the first such program in our region, we anticipate many questions about what a residency training site is and how it may affect local medical care — your own care or that of the community. We'll do our best to answer those here.

Patients who are interested in seeing Schuman should discuss this directly with their PCP at Family & Community Care.

Blood draws will be associated with appointments not scheduled for the lab. Labs are drawn at Family & Community Care as part of a visit. There will not be walk-in lab services at this time. X-rays will not be available at FCC.
