The Community Care Center began life in 1981 as the APD/Dartmouth Family Practice Center, a multipurpose facility designed to train medical students and family practice residents. In 1989, APD purchased the college's lease and reconfigured the practice as a full-service family medicine clinic.
In 2006, APD raised $4.3 million to renovate the building and rename it the Robert A. Mesropian Center for Community Care. The center originally offered primary care, internal medicine, geriatric care, and physical therapy. Many remember the center’s sunny waiting room with the round, circle window seat for children.
In 2017, all outpatient support, including primary care, moved to the new Multi-Specialty Clinic. The Robert A. Mesropian Center became home to an Infusion Clinic at the start of the pandemic and was later renovated in 2020 to include a state-of-the-art Sleep Health Center.
