“This new health center is just another example of our continued commitment to better
serving our community. This opportunity to partner with a strong organization like CHDC will
allow us to offer what families need most at times that are convenient and accessible to
them. We’re excited to announce that families can officially sign up for appointments today,
to be seen here, in this exam room. CHDC will also be offering Covid testing and vaccinations
starting Wednesday September 8th at 1 pm,” shared Stacey Woodland.

“We are thrilled to bring health centered services & well checks to the community and meet
people where they are. This is a tremendous opportunity for residents and the Pottstown
community to increase immunization, access to well-checks and work hand-in hand with
parents to offer comprehensive health care to families in the area,” said Jenn O’Donnell.

“We love to support partnerships in the community! This is a great representation of two
wonderful organizations working together to make the community better,” stated Eileen
Dautrich.
