U.S. Senator Bob Casey joined MFHS staff, along with representatives from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), at the Circle of Care Scranton office yesterday for a tour and to discuss the $200,000 in ARC funding that MFHS used to purchase equipment for our new dental program. The Senator had the opportunity to meet our staff and see the dental equipment, including a CEREC machine, that allows us to provide same day root canal and permanent crown placements. These same-day services are one more way MFHS is working to remove barriers to accessing quality health care in Northeast PA, as transportation issues can often prevent low-income clients from making multiple appointments to have this kind of dental work completed.

Thank you to Senator Casey, Senator Marty Flynn, and the NEPA Alliance for joining us for this tour.
