This group recently gathered for a ground breaking photograph at the site of “The Pottle House” on the campus of Lee Academy in Lee, Maine. Through a federally funded grant, Health Access Network has partnered with Lee Academy to provide, not only a school-based health center for the students of Lee Academy, but a health center that the entire community and surrounding areas are welcome and encouraged to take advantage of as well. Locally known as “The Pottle House”, Health Access Network – Lee, will offer primary healthcare, behavioral health as well as dental hygiene once the health center has been completed. The building has been designed by local architect, Ted Ocana, to resemble the original “Pottle House”. Demolition and foundation work was done by Larry Ham Construction of Lincoln and the construction of the building is being done by Nichols Construction, Inc. of Bangor.
Health Access Network is currently offering primary healthcare and behavioral health services from a temporary office in the lower portion of the Lee Town Office. This office is staffed by Christopher Mannari, PA-C, Amy Morin, LCSW, Sara Brewer, Medical Assistant and Amy Banks, Receptionist. Office hours are Monday through Friday 7 am to 5 pm.
