Family Health Care Center of Newtown


Home Page

Dear Patient,

Family Health Care Center of Newtown has a history of serving the residents of Newtown for more than two decades.  On 6/19/2014 the assets of Family Healthcare Center of Newtown will be acquired by Western Connecticut Medical Group (WCMG).  Beginning on July 2nd, 2014 WCMG Newtown Family Healthcare will begin operations at 33 Church Hill Road.  You will be able to see many of the same medical care providers that you have visited previously.   Maureen Engel and Jessica Stellato, the nurse practitioners who many of our patients are familiar with, will practice at WCMG Newtown Family Healthcare.  You will also find many of the nursing and clerical support staff at WCMG Newtown Family Healthcare after the transition. However, I will focus my efforts at The Vein Institute of Connecticut.

Your medical records will be transferred to WCMG so that they can follow up with your health care needs with a complete history of your health. 

Dr. Naomi Smidt-Afek MD, has joined WCMG Newtown Family Healthcare and will also be available to see existing patients as well as new patients.  Prior to moving to CT she was Medical director of Women’s Health Center and Counseling in Somerville, NJ and held an academic appointment as an assistant professor at New York Medical College in the Family Medicine Department.

If you need to see a care provider prior to July 2nd Dr. Smidt-Afek and the other providers are available to see patients at the WCMG Monroe Primary Care location, and you can schedule an appointment for them at 203-638-1180.  The providers at WCMG look forward to taking good care of your family into the future.
