The center offers primary care, pediatrics, gynecology, occupational health, laboratory, X-ray, mammography, and rehabilitative services.

When Newport Hospital closed in 1991, New London Hospital (NLH) and its Board of Trustees recognized the continuing need for primary care and additional services for the Newport community. To fill this need, we opened the Newport Health Center (NHC).

NHC offers convenient evening hours as well as same-day appointments.

To register for services at the Newport Health Center, download and complete the Newport Health Center registration packet (PDF).

Newport Health Center also offers services for students at Newport Middle High School at the Tiger Treatment Center.

Please refer to the following sections:
