Non Profit Medical
Kevin’s Community Center, Inc. (KCC) was founded in 2002 as a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization by Dr. and Mrs. Z. Michael Taweh in memory of their son, Kevin to address the health care crisis in Connecticut for uninsured and underinsured adult residents of Newtown, Bridgewater and Roxbury. At that time, Dr. Taweh led a community-wide, grassroots effort to found the clinic involving state and municipal government and the business, medical, financial, nonprofit and religious sectors and the citizens who had a stake in the well-being of our community. To date we have provided more than 5,000 patient visits and have delivered more than $2,500,000 in free medical care including specialty care referrals. Through the 2008 collapse of the financial markets, KCC’s patient visits soared to 800-900 annually by 2010, serving on average 120 new patient visits per year for those who had lost their health care coverage.
Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western CT, Inc. offers real hope for those facing advanced illness through patient-focused care, education, resources and advocacy. We help patients and families discover what end-of-life care can bewhat can be gained, what can be realized and what can be recaptured.
