A new medical and dental clinic has been opened in Nashua, New Hampshire, to help people with little or no health coverage.
Governor Maggie Hassan on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center located on High St. The facility was build at a cost of more than $5 million throughout the past two years.
Peter Kelleher of Harbor Homes said they are looking to help veterans and people who are homeless live healthier lives.
"Access to care that people can afford is very difficult especially dental care and for people who do not have access to care having a patient-centered medical home is really what the goal is here," said Kelleher.
"We are very much available to help vulnerable and underserved people from anywhere in New Hampshire," said Kelleher.
The new wellness center has about 2,500 patients, and they anticipate that number will increase to about 4,000 within a year.
The ceremony was held on August 12 in honor of National Health Center Week.
