The new health center will be owned by the town and operated by Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
Hudson Headwaters Health Network is a group of community health centers providing care to the residents in 11 North Country towns, including Schroon Lake and Ticonderoga.
Hudson Headwaters took over the Moriah Health Center, formerly the Mineville Health Center, Jan. 1, 2005. The health center is now in the Moriah Community Building.
Originally, plans for a new health center called for a 5,000 square feet facility with nine exam rooms; now plans call for 4,000 square feet building with six exam rooms.
Hudson Headwaters officials have said they plan to expand services in Moriah once a new facility is in place.
Services at other Hudson Headwaters facilities include routine, urgent and walk-in care; specialty and ancillary services at its larger centers; on-site care in nursing homes, hospitals and home settings; 24-hour call and inpatient hospital coverage 365 days a year; and a range of programs in health screening, tracking, education and prevention.
