Today, Congressman Mike Michaud praised the award of a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant of $787,500 for a primary care site serving the greater Lee region. Health Access Network has been awarded the funds to renovate a historical building on the Lee Academy campus that will provide healthcare access to 13 underserved communities.
"Maine community health centers have time and again proven that they provide quality, efficient care," said Michaud. "With this new investment, Health Access Network will be able to offer critical health services to communities currently struggling with provider shortages."
The Lee site will offer primary care, urgent care, behavioral care and substance abuse counseling, dental care, life style and health education and case management. Health Access Network is a community health center with healthcare providers and staff currently offering services in West Enfield, Lincoln, Medway and Millinocket.
