Residents on the south end of Cache Valley now have an additional option when it comes to getting many of their health care needs.
The Bear River Health Department recently opened a new satellite clinic located at 635 South 100 East in Logan in the Riverwoods complex, near Conservice.
With traffic and convenience a key factor, the facility was built to serve residents in Hyrum, Wellsvile and the southern portion of Logan.
Lloyd Berentzen, Director of the Bear River Health Department, says clients from the south end of the valley no longer have to travel through Logan to access needed services.
“There’s no question that not having to cross through the traffic on Main Street is a real convenience factor for folks,” Berentzen said.
“It is a direct service agency as a satellite office,” Berentzen added. “Services include immunizations, vital records, WIC (women, infants and children) as well as counseling.”
In addition, travel shots, cancer screening, TB testing and immigration services are also available at the new satellite clinic.
The BRHD was originally established in 1971 by the Utah legislature. The clinics provide public health services to the residents of Box Elder, Cache, and Rich counties.
The new building is one of eight clinics that offers over 190 services at the different locations.
The BRHD has just over 110 employees and services a population of more than 160,000.
