You can't see them, but bacteria, viruses and other tiny organisms can wreak havoc on your health. The CHA infectious disease team diagnoses and treats conditions caused by these pests. We use the latest tests and techniques to understand what's going on with your health, and work together with you and your care team to best address your health needs.

Infectious Disease Care at its Best

Specialized expertise

We provide the same high-quality treatment as larger hospitals, but in a community setting. You matter to us, no matter how simple or serious your disease. Our board-certified physicians understand all types of infectious diseases, helping you with everything from lingering bacterial infections to travel medicine, sexually transmitted infections, hepatitis and HIV co-infection and disease risks for people with opioid addiction.

We're also one of the few healthcare systems with an infectious disease clinical pharmacist on staff, who brings treatment expertise for unusual or uncommon diseases.

Keeping your loved ones and community safe

A big part of our work is helping keep diseases from spreading. That's why you will find counseling and education to help you keep your disease from spreading to loved ones. We also work closely with local public health departments to control disease and keep people healthy.

Special Services for Common Conditions


CHA has a full range of services for the treatment and prevention of hepatitis. Our Hepatitis Clinic at the CHA Somerville Campus (6th floor, south building) evaluates and treats patients with Hepatitis B and C. Patients co-infected with HIV are also welcome. Appointments are available Monday mornings.


Tuberculosis is a serious lung disease that spreads easily, so it's important to get treatment fast. CHA offers complete TB services at the Schipellite Chest Center at CHA Cambridge Hospital. X-rays, lab tests, medications and visits are all available free of charge, paid by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Note: This clinic does not do TB skin testing for routine work requirements. Please see your primary care doctor.
