In 1992 the Good Neighbor Health Clinics began as the vision of two doctors —Dr. Peter Mason and Dr. Paul Manganiello. Recognizing the lack of healthcare for the homeless and underinsured, they began to offer primary care and other services at the Haven
In 1996, and in response to the increased need for dental care, the Red Logan Dental Clinic was formed and became part of the organization.
In 2001, with the help of a federal grant obtained by Vermont Senator Jim Jeffords and generous contributions from our supportive community, the former Gates Memorial Library was restored and transformed into the vibrant, warm, comfortable health center that it is today. The now restored facilities are located in downtown White River Junction, in a neo Gothic revival building listed in the National Register of historic buildings. A satellite clinic was opened in downtown Lebanon in the fall of 2022.
Good Neighbor Health Clinics is a member of the Vermont Coalition of Clinics for the Uninsured. Our organization collaborates and cooperates with regional hospitals and health centers and supports initiatives to provide better care for the region’s population. Good Neighbor Health Clinics depends on community support to provide services to residents of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Today, Good Neighbor Health Clinics proudly provides services to 3,000 residents of the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont every year.
Better care starts with caring
“I have responsibilities to my family and to my community. If someone is in need I try to address it. We all suffer when others suffer. I truly enjoy spending time with patients!”
