Patient Care & Safety Concerns

All patients have the right to voice concerns or complaints regarding the care they received, to have those complaints reviewed, and, when possible, resolved. The presentation of a complaint will not jeopardize patient care or compromise a patient's future access to care here. The Greater New Bedford Community Health Center's policy is to respond to patient complaints as soon as possible and usually within 5 working days of the complaint being filed.
