About Our Programs and Services
At Healthcare Associates (HCA), we provide a wide range of primary care services and state-of-the-art programs that are high quality and cost-effective. Our services are coordinated and integrated, from an annual physical exam to ongoing mental health services. We also expertly support patients in managing chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, HCA, along with the rest of BIDMC and BILH, has worked hard to offer as many of our services as possible safely, securely, and remotely when clinically appropriate. HCA patients can now access virtual care visits (also called telemedicine or telehealth) on a variety of devices and across broadband Wi-Fi or cellular network connections. Patients can request a new telehealth visits or request that existing visits be converted to telehealth.
We offer many primary care services and programs, including:
