There’s a new Center for Wellness in downtown Greenfield. The Center for Human Development’s Greenfield Center for Wellness will provide integrated health care to thousands of Franklin County residents.
The facility, located at 102 Main Street in Greenfield, comes complete with three floors and more than a hundred different rooms.
The building will offer a variety of health services including primary care, dental, and behavioral services.
They’ll also provide a number of social welfare programs for people struggling with abuse, joblessness, and homelessness.
It took about a year to build the facility and cost CHD $6 million.
“There’s a new view of health care overall so that everything is being viewed as an integrated system,” CHD’s CEO and President Jim Goodwin explained. “And the thought is when you treat the whole person, it’ll drive down costs in the long run.”
Goodwin told 22News that 80 health professionals will be working at the center and they expect to serve more than 9,000 people a week.
The Franklin County Chamber Commerce said the facility will generate $11 million annually to the downtown area.
CHD will begin serving clients at the Center for Wellness on April 30.
