In celebration of their newly renovated clinic, Horizon Health Care will be hosting an open house at the Alcester Community Health Center on Wednesday, March 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Tours of the new facility will be available for individuals who wish to see updated rooms and features. The program will begin at 12:15 p.m. Lunch and refreshments will be available.
The new renovations are provided by generous investors of the Horizon Health Foundation. At last year’s annual Pars for Patients Fundraising Traveling Golf Tournament, a net of $70,000 was raised to support updates to the Alcester Community Health Center, including new flooring and paint. These upgrades will create a better environment for the clinic’s employees and patients.
“Thank you to all those who’ve contributed to and supported the Alcester clinic’s development,” said Wade Erickson, Chief Executive Officer for Horizon Health Care. “Horizon is excited for the new renovations to the clinic and the continued commitment to high-quality care they will help provide for your community.”
The Alcester Community Health Center is currently available for appointments during their normal hours of Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. They provide primary and preventative care for patients, insured or uninsured.
