New health boost for area

The Western Star - - BEST OF THE WEST -

LO­CAL al­lied health has gone out on a limb and opened a Vi­tal Health of­fice in Charlevill­e af­ter work­ing out of in­dige­nous health of­fices for the past two years.

Of­fi­cially open­ing its doors about a month ago, Vi­tal Health in Charlevill­e is the new hub for the south­west re­gion and is now lo­cated at 81 Galatea St.

Clin­i­cal co­or­di­na­tor Sophia Me­land said they were ex­cited to be in their own of­fice and be able to pro­vide the much-needed health ser­vices to the re­gion.

“Be­ing based in Roma as our main of­fice we do out­reach to the south­west re­gion and Charlevill­e had that much need and in­ter­est in our ser­vices we de­cided to have our own hub there.

“That way we have a team out there full time in­stead of every fort­night. We have found the com­mu­nity re­spond bet­ter when there are peo­ple in town who are lo­cals that live and work.”

“It is a great lo­ca­tion and we want peo­ple to know we are in town.”
