Community Health Center opens in Centerville
Community Health Center of Cape Cod hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new Centerville office on Jan. 31.
There was a great turnout of board members, donors, patients, staff, volunteers and community partners to officially open the new office, which is located at 1185B Falmouth Rd. (Route 28).
Karen Gardner, Community Health Center of Cape Cod CEO, welcomed the crowd and provided information about the Health Center’s expansion.
State Rep. Will Crocker (R-Centerville) also commented upon the importance of health centers on the Cape. All of the guests at the ribbon cutting were able to tour the new office and meet the staff.
“Cutting the ribbon today at our Centerville office is our first step in providing access to affordable health care to even more Cape Cod residents,” Gardner said. “Over the last 20 years, we have seen tremendous patient growth and recognized a need for a location on the mid-Cape to keep up with the demand for health care services. Now that our new Centerville office is officially open, we look forward to offering high-quality, affordable, integrated health care closer to our patients and to the community as a whole.”
The Centerville office offers primary and walk-in care services. Dental services will be offered later this year. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
No appointment is necessary to utilize walk-in services for treatment and care of minor injuries and illnesses. Services are open to the public.
The Centerville facility is Community Health Center’s fourth location on Cape Cod. Other clinics are located in Bourne, Falmouth and Mashpee. For more information, visit www.chcofcapecod.org or call 508-477-7090.
