Utica, NY (WIBX) – Oneida County Executive, Anthony Picente Jr., presented a proclamation to a local health center, recognizing the work they do in the community. It’s all part of National Health Center Week. “I felt to recognize in particular this regional healthcare center we have here in the City of Utica that serves a great population, that provides quality healthcare to people who have difficulty, or who can’t access, you know, certain primary networks. It really does provide a great service to the community, and I think it’s important to recognize centers like this, in particular this one here,” said Picente.

Regional Primary Care Network, located at 1651 Oneida Street in Utica, offers medical and dental services at a reduced cost to those less fortunate. Nurse Manager, Myra Fuentes, says they don’t turn anyone away, and some of their patients even drive up to two hours for the services offered. “We have a lot of young adults, as well as seniors that find it very difficult to get dental care and have not seen a dentist in a very long time,” Fuentes said. She adds that the service is an asset in the community because it allows the medical group to meet the goal they strive for; prevention.

The proclamation highlights the center’s core values of delivering high quality, cost effective, and accessible primary care to all individuals regardless of their ability to pay.
