Generations pg 2 1-3-19

PUTNAM — Generations Family Health Center recently celebrated the expansion of its Putnam site with a Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Ceremony.  In February, 2016 Generations was awarded grant money to expand its existing 9,100 square foot Putnam Health Center by 4,500 square feet to increase access to medical, dental, and behavioral health services in this medically underserved area of northeastern Connecticut.
Funding for this $2.46 million expansion project came from a variety of sources including:  The State of Connecticut’s Nonprofit Grant Program; Community Health Network of Connecticut Environmental Grant funds; Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority (CHEFA); and The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).  The current facility opened in August 2012, with a projected capacity of 5,000 patients & 25,000 visits annually and within two short years operated in excess of both patient & visit capacity. This expansion will increase access to care to an additional 3,750 patients.
The brand new community room was dedicated to Doug Cutler, former town administrator of Putnam and a former Generations’ Board member that passed away unexpectedly in 2016.  Cutler was instrumental in increasing access to care to the residents of Putnam and surrounding communities by helping with the development of the Generations Putnam site, School Based Health Center in Putnam and many other community projects in Putnam.
Generations also honored retired State Representative Danny Rovero.According to Arvind Shaw, CEO of Generations Family Health Center, Inc., “We are thrilled to carry on our mission in Putnam with additional space for increased access to care to the community.  In addition, it gives us great pleasure to honor Doug Cutler and Danny Rovero, two public officials that have helped us to carry on that mission and increase access to care for people in the Northeast corner.”
