The Waterbury Hospital Infectious Disease Clinic (WHIC) was established in 2003 with Ryan White Part C EIS funding. Since then, WHIC has made significant strides in building a multi-disciplinary team of clinical and administrative staff to provide high-quality care to Persons Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in our region. The WHIC is the largest HIV primary care clinic in Northwest Connecticut, serving over 450 active PLWHA annually. Our team includes three physicians board-certified in Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine (one in Pediatrics), an APRN, Medication Adherence Nurses, a Registered Nurse, a Registered Dietician, medical case managers, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a mental health counselor, a substance abuse counselor, a trained outreach worker, and a psychiatrist. The WHIC’s “one-stop shopping” clinic model provides vital medical and psychosocial services.
