The UConn Health Center flag is flying in Southington. More than 250 people recently attended an Open House at the Health Center’s new Southington office at 1115 West Street and saw the medical office first hand.
During the Open House, guests from the community had a chance to meet the physicians, staff and other health care providers who are now seeing patients in Southington; take a tour of the clinical space; and learn about the range of services offered in the new location.
Orthopaedic, neurosurgery and spine specialists with the Health Center’s New England Musculoskeletal Institute have been seeing patients in Southington since 2008. In January, all of those services, as well as a variety of new specialty services, moved down the road into a larger building on West Street.
“We’re in a new location with the same great services we’ve offered for years – plus a lot more,” said Anne Horbatuck, chief operating officer of the Health Center’s New England Musculoskeletal Institute, who coordinated many of the logistics surrounding the new location.
New services in Southington include dermatology, urology, OB/GYN care, ENT care, breast health, surgery and vascular surgery consultations, and a blood drawing station.
During the Open House, the Health Center was awarded a 2013 Beautification Award from the Southington Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the new location. The award was also presented to the builder, Mark Lovely.
