This Tuesday marked the groundbreaking ceremony for the horizontal expansion of a three-story health center at 6200 Beach Channel Drive in Arverne, Far Rockaway, Queens. The development is projected to double the capacity of the existing space, providing more medical resources to the growing population. The added space will allow for expanded capacity to bring essential health service to the neighborhood designated as medically underserved according to federal guidelines. Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center will be responsible for the development.
