In close coordination with Blackstone Valley Community Health Care, Progreso Latino, Memorial Hospital, the YMCA of Pawtucket and Central Falls, Nursing Placement, Inc; The Providence Center, Gateway Health Care, Anchor Recovery and others, we work to make sure all residents of Central Falls get the health services they need, and work to make sure those health services are effective at improving the health of everyone in the City.
