Good Neighbor Health Clinic To Open New Site In Lebanon
Lebanon, NH: To further support community health care and services and increase access to those in need, Good Neighbor Health Clinics is excited to announce the opening of a new satellite clinic location in Lebanon.
“The heart of our mission has always been to meet patients on their own terms,” said Dana Michalovic, Executive Director. “This expansion will place a free clinic close by other important services, such as the LISTEN food pantry and is also located on the local bus line, hopefully reducing patient transportation hurdles.”
She added that the new location will host several clinics at the outset with chronic disease management, ophthalmology, and women’s health among the first items on the agenda.
“We’re utilizing a phased approach as we ramp up,” noted Michalovic. “Over time, we’ll be adding more programs and services based on local needs.” According to Michalovic, patients at the new site will also be connected to other social services as needed. It is expected that the new site will be operational and seeing patients by mid-November.
Good Neighbor’s legacy has always been one of key collaborations and partnerships. Prior to opening the Lebanon clinic, Alice Peck Day Hospital had provided clinic space. “The hospital has long been an enduring champion for community health care,” said Michalovic. “We can’t thank them enough for their years of support.”
The Clinic provides care thought the goodwill of licensed volunteers. “All of our care and services are provided at no cost,” said Michalovic. “In fulfilling our mission, we seek to help our patients achieve and maintain improved health and empower them toward a healthier future, while also helping learners perusing medical degrees to better understand our patients.”
The new clinic is located at 103 Hanover Street. To learn more, or schedule an appointment, please call 802-295-1868.
