In the mid-1980’s, Community Clinical Services was established as a nonprofit health care organization based in Lewiston, Maine to serve the needs of local residents. In 1999, the organization applied for Federally Qualified Health Center Look-alike designation, and was awarded this designation effective April 2000. Our strong partnership with the St. Mary’s Health System, including the St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center, all based in Lewiston, Maine, allows our patients to receive seamless, affordable, and high quality health care services throughout the continuum of care. The St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center is a LEAP FROG high award hospital, one of very few in the nation.
CCS’ health centers now include our flagship B Street Health Center on 57 Birch Street, in the heart of Lewiston’s “downtown neighborhood,” Family Health Center, on the St. Mary’s campus on 100 Campus Avenue in Lewiston, CCS Pediatrics on the St. Mary’s campus, 2nd Street Health Center, home of our pediatric dental program on 60 Second Street in Auburn, as well as four school based health centers in Lewiston and Auburn; and integrated behavioral health counselors at locations in Lewiston, Auburn and Poland. Services include: primary medical care, pediatric health care, and pediatric dental care; behavioral health counseling for mental health and substance use conditions, psychiatry, medication management, geriatric psychiatry including our specialized assessment and care services for elders with diminished memory functioning; nurse care management for patients with complex health conditions, interpretation services, and support services to help patients gain access to additional health care services. We are here for you!

Community Clinical Services Board members are valued volunteers who live and/or work in our local communities. By regulation, at least 51% of CCS’ Board members must be our patients – this helps us to continually know how we are doing, from a patient’s perspective. Board members attend a monthly 1.5 hour meeting, and serve on board subcommittees. It is a great way to give back to your community and learn and hone governance skills. If you have interest in being considered for a future board membership, contact CEO Joan Churchill at email@example.com.
