After a few successful weeks of operation, ECHN celebrated the opening of its first Urgent Care Center at 2800 Tamarack Avenue in South Windsor. Chairman of the ECHN Board of Trustees Dennis O'Neill, MD, congratulated the staff and greeted guests. The community had an opportunity to meet with the urgent care staff and tour the facility. There was only positive feedback.
