SOUTH PORTLAND (WGME) -- The Portland Community Center is celebrating the opening of a new location in South Portland.
With that move the organization is also changing its name.
There is a lot of excitement at the new location.
The Portland Community Health Center board of directors says the new name, Greater Portland Health, reflects the new location.
A few workers and community members came out Wednesday for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Mayor Ethan Strimling was here as well as a member of the South Portland city council.
Greater Portland health is a community non-profit that provides primary care services and mental health counseling.
The new location will focus on serving people in South Portland that may not have access to health care.
The CEO says Greater Portland Health is preparing to take over some of the services currently at the India Street clinic in Portland.
She says they are still working out the details but some patients may come to this new location here in South Portland if that's convenient for them.
