A rare warm and sunny mid-winter day provided the perfect setting for MDI Hospital’s January 8th ground breaking ceremony at the site of its new Community Health Center in Southwest Harbor. Located adjacent to Ridge Apartments, the new facility will replace the current Community Health Center, providing more space and easier access. Construction is scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2008. Services offered will include primary care, behavioral health, physical and occupational therapy, care management, alternative medicine, and an adult day care facility for people with memory loss.
