POTTSTOWN PA – Community Health and Dental Care, which already provides medical, dental, vision, obstetric, and behavioral health care from three offices in Sanatoga and Pottstown, is working to open a fourth office by September in the Coventry Mall at Routes 724 and 100. Construction is already under way (at top and below) to convert the former Ross clothing store space there for the facility’s use.
Mall management said it considers Community Health and Dental Care an “anchor tenant” and anticipates the convenient location will attract a substantial client audience that also benefits other mall merchants.
The mall location represents added growth for the non-profit organization that first opened on Robinson Street in Pottstown during 2008, with funding support from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation. The new facility is expected to include pediatric medicine, adult medicine, vision, OB/GYN, and dental services, as well as its administrative offices. Planned for the future are diagnostic and physical therapy services.
Ahead of its opening, Community Health and Dental Care will hold a health and fitness expo Aug. 17 (2017; Thursday) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the mall’s center court. It’s free, open to the public, and features health screenings, food, vendors, games, musical entertainment, a Zumba exercise program, and prizes and give-aways. The event marks National Health Center Week, observed this year from Aug. 13 to 19.
A children’s coloring contest will be sponsored throughout the week at all three current Community Health and Dental Care sites:
- 11 Robinson Street, Suite 100, Pottstown;
- 700 Heritage Drive, Suite 701, Sanatoga; and
- 800 Heritage Drive, Suite 802, Sanatoga.
Also, anyone who visits a location during the week and wears their favorite sports team’s attire may be eligible for a free prize.
