About Us

StayWell Health Center (SHC) is a Federally Qualified Health Center that has been operating in Waterbury since 1972. It opened as part of the Model Cities Program, a federal effort to bring health services to the Medically Underserved Areas of the city. Originally operated by the City of Waterbury, Department of Public Health, StayWell Health Center became a non-profit tax-exempt corporation in 1994. Since then, it has seen a steady growth in its client base and its role as a healthcare provider within the community. This year we expect to provide over 85,000 patient visits.

The mission of Staywell Health Care is to provide the best possible healthcare to our patients. Each employee cooperating through each department makes an important contribution to patient care whether you have direct patient contact or not.

Each of our staff members – professional, administrative and support – compliments the other to provide the best possible care.

Should you chose to join our StayWell family, not only is your job important, YOU are important. As a member of the patient care team, you have a demanding yet rewarding job.

As an employee of the StayWell family, you are a part of our history as well as our future.
