We’re Connecticut’s only trans- and queer-led health center for the LGBTQ community.
Anchor Health was founded on the principle that the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community deserves groundbreaking, radically inclusive, gender-affirming, and sex-positive care—that’s what we bring to every patient who walks through our doors. Our approach to health care understands how intersecting systems of oppression affect a patient’s health and wellbeing, which means creating a space to listen and learn.
Established in 2016 with a handful of staff members working out of a closet, we now have a team of over 25 employees and see more than 2,500 patients across two full-service clinics in Connecticut. Over 50% of our patients are transgender and gender nonconforming.
Through a holistic lens, we work as a team to address patients’ physical, mental, and social needs. Our services include primary and preventative care, Gender & Life-Affirming Medicine (GLAM), HIV prevention and treatment, comprehensive STI testing, trauma-informed behavioral health care, and more. In-house case managers can assist patients with updating gender identification documents, name changes, accessing basic needs, and other services. Additionally, our pharmacy is skilled in navigating insurance coverage for gender-affirming medicine, PrEP, and HIV treatment. We offer discounted pricing and prescription pickup or delivery.
We are health care for queer people by queer people.OUR HISTORY LOCATIONS & HOURS WHAT WE DO
