Breaking Ground For A New Health Center

May 1, 2017

Rep. Matthew Lesser joined state officials, city residents and local dignitaries for a ceremonial ground-breaking of the Community Health Center's new primary care peace and health building in Middletown.

The new three-story, 30,000-square-foot building will house information technology, telehealth communications, human resources and other offices that comprise CHC’s statewide primary care network.

Second-graders from the North End’s Macdonough Elementary School sat in colorful tie-dyed CHC T-shirts and once the time arrived to break ground, each was outfitted with a ceremonial hard hat and had a little fun scooping up a shovelful of earth and tossing it into the air.
