Mid-State Health Center Celebrates National Health Center Week

Aug 5, 2022 | News, Uncategorized

Mid-State Health Center celebrates National Health Center Week this week, August 7 through August 13, to create awareness about the clinics around the nation that work tirelessly to keep our communities healthy.

Community Health Centers (CHCs) provide preventive and primary care services to more than 92,000 patients in New Hampshire. CHCs, like Mid-State, strive to provide care to those in our community who are underserved and lack access to affordable, quality care. CHCs are not ordinary medical clinics; they are problem-solvers who reach beyond the exam room to care for the whole person by providing access to necessities like food and housing resources, dental, behavioral health, and more; further, they care for everyone, regardless of insurance status.

While our approach is community-based, collectively we are the backbone of the nation’s primary care system.  CHCs lower health care costs to the tune of 24 billion dollars a year, reduce rates of chronic diseases and stimulate local economies.

“We are proud to be a part of the solution and recognize the vital role that health centers play in providing top-notch and accessible care to underserved populations,” said Robert MacLeod, Mid-State’s Chief Executive Officer, “we are continuously looking to add services that are needed in our region, and that are affordable and accessible to those in our community who need it most.”

Mid-State Health Center is committed during National Health Center Week, and every week, to addressing factors that cause poor health in our community. You can help too, by supporting a health center in your community.

Mid-State Health Center has announced that its newest primary care office in Lincoln, New Hampshire is now open. The clinic, located at 6 South Mountain Drive will provide top-notch, convenient, and affordable primary care options to the local area.

“We are overjoyed to open our new primary care site in Lincoln and expand our services in the area. This new clinic affords us the opportunity to provide Mid-State’s high-quality primary care services in an area that has, in the past, had limited healthcare services,” said Robert MacLeod, Chief Executive Officer at Mid-State Health Center.

Mid-State Lincoln is accepting patients of all ages and will offer primary care services such as physical examinations, immunizations, and diagnoses and treatment of illness and injuries. The clinic also offers care coordination with other healthcare providers, prescribing medication, and management of chronic conditions, providing a healthcare home model for its patients.

The new clinic is open Monday through Friday, and business hours can be found online at midstatehealth.org. To make an appointment, please call 603-536-4000.

In addition, Mid-State will be hosting a community open house on Thursday, March 2nd from 4 PM to 6 PM where residents and businesses from the local community can tour the new office, meet members of the Mid-State team, learn how to become a new patient, and hear more about the services Mid-State Health Center offers.  A ribbon cutting will take place at 4:15 PM, however, community members are invited to stop by at any point during the event. Light refreshments will be served.

For questions about the open house, Samantha Hooper, Director of Marketing and Communication can be contacted via email at shooper@midstatehealth.org.
