Moving to better digs is always a good thing. But first comes the move itself.
The Sonoma Valley Community Health Center is experiencing just such a transition as it prepares to temporarily close its clinic at 430 W. Napa St. ahead of next week’s move to a bigger, better facility at 19270 Sonoma Highway.
In a news release, health center administrators said they have been working to contact the center’s nearly 7,000 Sonoma Valley patients “to alert them to the temporary closure of the facility and to develop alternative plans for care during that timeframe.”
According to Development Director Kathleen Bianchi-Rossi, the center’s Behavioral Health Division and annex will close on Wednesday of this week, but the primary clinic on Napa Street will remain open. Then on Thursday, the entire clinic will close.
The new facility is slated to open next Tuesday, July 22, giving health center employees a few days to finish packing, moving and setting up in the new facility. Administrators say they also plan to provide some extra training for staff during the transition period.
