Over 38 years of Quality Care for the Community

Barrier-Free Access to Services

Southwest is recognized as one of the city’s leading healthcare facilities offering residents of all ages an opportunity to access quality health care from excellent providers. Care is affordable to all as Southwest offers a discount fee schedule to persons without insurance. Since its inception in 1976 as a non-profit, Southwest has been committed to providing high quality, accessible medical, dental and behavioral health services to individuals and families, in the Greater Bridgeport area, especially the uninsured and underinsured.

Over the years, Southwest has grown from a single facility located in building 14 of the P.T. Barnum Housing Complex to more than 19 full service and satellite locations across the City of Bridgeport offering comprehensive health care services. As a testimony of commitment to the community, Southwest partnered with Optimus Health Care in assuming the management of the city’s school-based health centers and the special supplemental nutrition program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), thus helping to provide thousands of Bridgeport residents with quality health care and social services.
