Henry County Health Department will be closing its
dental services on October 2, 2015. For the past
several months, Henry County Health Department has been working toward
the transition of its dental operations to the Health Partners of
Western Ohio’s Federally-Qualified Health Center in Bryan, Ohio. The
Bryan facility is slated to open in mid-December, however due to the
recent resignation of the health department’s dentist, the dental clinic
will be closing sooner than expected in early October. This does not
impact any other service provided by Henry County Health Department.
The Health Department will continue to serve the residents of Henry
County at 1843 Oakwood Avenue in Napoleon.
“This isn’t easy to do when patients’ care and people’s jobs are
involved,” says Anne Goon, Health Commissioner. “Though the transition
didn’t happen as smoothly as we had hoped, we are confident the Health
Partners of Western Ohio facility in Bryan can meet our patients’ needs
more effectively and offer them services we simply cannot."
As a Federally-Qualified Health Center, Health
Partners of Western Ohio can offer residents of Northwest Ohio access to
comprehensive and affordable health care services. The new
state-of-the-art facility will address dental, medical, mental health
and addiction, and pharmacy needs. With brand new equipment, a larger
facility, and more staff, clients will experience shorter wait times and
be able to get their needs met under one roof.
Health department dental staff have been aware of
the transition throughout the process and learned of the October closing
earlier this week. All current dental staff were previously provided
with the opportunity to apply for positions at the Health Partners’
Bryan site. Interviews have been scheduled for mid-October and many
health department dental clinic employees look forward to continuing to
serve Henry County residents in the new Bryan facility.
“The next two months will not be easy, but the
eventual result will be that our former dental patients and other
residents of Northwest Ohio will have access to more comprehensive care
in one convenient location,” expressed Goon.
Current health department dental staff have
already begun calling clients to explain the situation and cancel dental
appointments this week. All patient records will be maintained at the
Health Department and can be easily transferred per the patient’s
request. “Change is never easy, but in the end the services provided by
Health Partners will be more comprehensive than we could offer and the
health and well- being of our residents is our main priority,” stated
