About KCC

Our Mission & Vision

We provide medical services for the underinsured, as well as community wellness and screening.

We envision a population unimpeded in their pursuit of accessible quality care within a community keenly aware of the benefits of a holistic approach to wellness.

Our Story

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.

2017

In January 2017, after 15 years of steady fundraising and continuous monitoring of the needs of our community, we moved into our newly-acquired medical building at 25 Commerce Road, Newtown, CT where we constructed a modest but modern clinic space to expand and deepen our offerings to our patients and strengthen collaboration with the wellness community for the benefit of our beloved Newtown residents.

As the complexion and complexity of our country’s healthcare system continues to change and evolve, KCC remains committed to adapting in order to continue to serve the health care needs of our residents.

Kevin’s Community Center Medical Outreach Program has officially launched.

This program will replace the traditional in-office primary care services that was the cornerstone of the KCC mission for the past 18 years. The medical outreach program will encompass educational and community programs, in addition to referrals to medical services and specialty care to network providers in our community. We will no longer be seeing patients but will assist you with finding the right care for your needs.
