PLYMOUTH —Harbor Community Health Center-Plymouth is pleased to announce that its medical and dental clinical hours have been extended to include Monday evenings until 8:00 p.m. “We chose to be open for additional hours on Mondays as a result of a survey of our patients’ needs,” says Executive Director Nancy Bucken. “We hope this will increase our accessibility to those who have not been able to schedule visits during the day.” After a trial period in order to access feedback, it is likely the center will extend evening hours to other days as well.
