A new lab area also enables staff to prepare materials prior to meeting with patients. There is also a new call center that provides receptionists with much more privacy when receiving and making calls.
Access is also a key to the new location’s attraction, especially being located close to the CART bus system, Tuthill noted.
The Health Center at CVPH will close on Friday, Aug. 16, to give workers an opportunity to move equipment and materials down to the new location in anticipation of the Aug. 19 opening. CVPH will also be holding an open house at the new center from 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13.
The current Health Center was opened to help reduce the number of patients who went to the Emergency Room for basic health-care needs. Since then, the center has outgrown its space and will welcome the opportunity to continue filling a special niche in the region’s health-care services.
