Windham Hospital to Host Open House For New Center for Women’s Health in Hebron
Willimantic—To mark the opening of the new Center for Women’s Health in Hebron, Windham Hospital will host an open house at the facility at 21 Liberty Drive on Saturday, May 18 from 10am-2pm. The event will include tours of the center, free health screenings, entertainment, light refreshments and prizes.
On April 1, the Windham Hospital Center for Women’s Health in Hebron opened its doors providing OB/GYN, imaging and lab services in downtown Hebron. The center, located nine miles from Windham Hospital, houses four exam rooms, bone density, ultrasound and mammography imaging technology, and Clinical Lab Partners (CLP) lab services. Yvette Martas, MD; Rob Gildersleeve, MD; and Kathleen Zacherl, MD, of Mansfield OB/GYN are seeing patients there four days a week.
Michael Dion, the hospital’s Vice President of Patient Care Services, leads a team of hospital and community leaders exploring continued expansion in Hebron. Dion, a Hebron resident for nearly 35 years, says the town is in need of convenient medical services.
“The hospital wanted to grow women’s health services. Working together with Mansfield OB/GYN in Hebron is a perfect fit,” says Dion. “There is certainly room for growth in other service lines in town.”
During the open house hospital and CLP staff will provide free health screenings including cholesterol testing, bone density, body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure. Staff from the Windham Hospital Imaging Department and Mansfield OB/GYN will be giving tours to show the new offices and equipment. Entertainment will include face painting and balloon bending.
Windham Hospital, founded in 1933, is a non-profit, acute-care community hospital serving 19 eastern Connecticut towns. It has 131 beds, conducts nearly 4,000 surgeries annually, and its emergency department has been ranked among the top 1 percent of hospitals nationwide for patient satisfaction
