CEO's Message

Normand E. DescheneDear Friends,

As we enter the final weeks of summer, we are looking forward to an exciting fall season at Circle Health. On Monday, August 25, we officially opened our new outpatient facility in Westford!

Located at 198 Littleton Road, Circle Health Westford features a great variety of services including:

Circle Health Urgent Care: staffed by urgent care physicians and caregivers who provide walk-in treatment and care for a variety of illnesses and injuries, from fractures and sprains to minor eye injuries and allergy issues. As we know, sometimes illnesses and injuries can’t wait, and Circle Health Urgent Care will provide a great option when your primary care physician (PCP) or pediatrician is not available, or when the issue does not warrant a trip to the emergency depart- ment. While you do not need to have a Circle Health PCP or pediatrician to use our urgent care, our team will update your regular doctor to ensure your follow-up care and needs are seamlessly coordinated. And should that follow-up care require a visit to a specialist, we can recommend a host of highly skilled Circle Health affiliated physicians to best meet your unique needs.

Lowell General Hospital Patient Service Center: offers a full range of testing services including blood draws and specimen collection, diagnostic imaging services (X-ray and ultrasound) and electro- cardiograms (EKG).

Westford Family Medicine: Two primary care Circle Health physicians, Dr. Christen Fragala and Dr. Katherine Powers, and Nurse Practitioner Sherine Hassey, are accepting new patients at Westford Family Medicine. This family practice provides comprehensive healthcare services for patients of all ages.

WomanHealth: provides a full range of obstetrics and gynecology healthcare to women from adolescence through maturity. With special expertise in gynecologic care, obstetrics, urinary incontinence, menopause and gynecologic cancer, the physicians and nurse practitioners offer the most up-to-date technology for diagnosis and treatment and the highest quality of care. WomanHealth’s providers deliver babies at The Birthplace at Lowell General Hospital, which features a spacious new Labor and Delivery unit and Level IIB Special Care Nursery. Lowell General Hospital also offers state-of-the-art gynecology services, including robotic-assisted gynecological surgery.

Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center Pediatric Specialty Center: Our expanded partnership with the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center brings the expertise of some of Boston’s top pediatric specialists to Westford. Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital have always provided healthcare for residents in Westford and its surrounding communities, and we are thrilled to be able to offer key Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital services in this convenient new location. We are confident that the providers and staff will deliver on the Circle Health promise of Complete connected careSM.

On behalf of the Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital team, I would like to thank the many area residents, local businesses and Westford officials for your vital support as we have worked to develop and open this new facility. We look forward to serving you and your families in the months ahead.

In good health,
