Generations initiates e-Consults and a Retinopathy program.
In August, Generations kicked off its 35th Anniversary Celebration with a fundraising concert, “Music for the Generations,” featuring international Grammy winning artists, Jose Feliciano and Peabo Bryson, on the new Shaboo stage in Willimantic. As a result of the concert, $28,000 was raised for the Generations Patient Assistance fund.
In November, Generations expanded its existing 9,100-square-foot Putnam Health Center by an additional 4,500 square feet to increase access to Medical, Dental, and Behavioral Health services in this medically underserved area of Northeast Connecticut. The new space created a dedicated home for Behavioral Health Services at the Putnam site.
In addition, Generations dedicated its brand-new community room at the Putnam site to Doug Cutler, former Town Administrator of Putnam and a former Generations’ Board member.
In November, Generations expands its Putnam School Based Health Center to the High School, offering Behavioral Health Services.
