PCHC updates Bangor High School-based health center
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Representatives from Penobscot Community Health Center gave an update Thursday on the incoming school-based health center at Bangor High School.
According to President and CEO Lori Dwyer and COO Dawn Cook, construction of the space is about 95 percent complete.
They anticipate a January opening for the facility, which will have a focus on psychotherapy and mental health.
The new Bangor center will be modeled after the Brewer center, which offers on-site medical, dental and mental health care for all students.
PCHC is prepared to offer a telehealth option, which could eventually let them serve other schools in the district.
Hiring will begin this week.
