SANATOGA PA – Community Health & Dental Care, a health care program focused primarily on children that opened on Robinson Street in Pottstown’s west side during October 2008, announced Friday (May 16, 2014) it was expanding its medical and dental health services with a new location in Sanatoga’s Heritage Drive office center.
The new site, at 700 Heritage Dr., provides greater access to affordable care for what program administrators describe as its current base of more than 15,000 patients. The expansion is being funded through a $500,000 grant from the state Department of Health, but the program also is a long-time partner with and beneficiary of funding from the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation and local businesses.
Community Health And Dental indicated it foresees a potential new market in offering medical and dental services to what it estimates is more than 11,000 uninsured area adults.
Locating on Heritage Drive represents an extension of Community Health & Dental’s presence in Sanatoga. Its administrative team has operated from offices in another part of the complex for some time.
The site includes several examination rooms, two dental facilities, a pharmacy, community room, and exercise area. It will be served, in part, by a free shuttle service that launched last December and which makes scheduled stops at the Rolling Hills apartment complex on Buchert Road; at Pottstown Regional Public Library and the Redner’s Quicke Shoppe store, both on High Street; and at the Bright Hope Community in Stowe.
New patients are being registered on a walk-in basis Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call the program at 610-326-9460. A public grand opening and ribbon-cutting for the site has been scheduled for June 11 (Wednesday) from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
