Endless Mountains Health Systems celebrated the grand opening of its new medical office in Hallstead on Wednesday, Nov. 29. The EMHS Clinic is located at 26 Rose St., Hallstead.

EMHS CEO Loren Stone said the clinic has been serving the community since July. He introduced Cheryl Leonard, CRNP, who serves as the primary care provider at the Hallstead clinic.

Primary care has been offered by EMHS – formerly Montrose General – for over 60 years, Stone explained. Around two decades ago, an office was also opened in New Milford. Stone offered his thanks to the Endless Mountain Health System Board of Directors for their vision to expand the EMHS service area to better serve the communities of Hallstead and Great Bend. “We’re expanding our reach here and beyond,” Stone said.

He also offered his appreciation to Rick Leet and Aaron Soden, for their work developing the property in Hallstead. The building – situated on the corner of Main and Rose streets – houses Honesdale National Bank, the Rick Leet Agency and 1938 Wealth Advisors, as well as a pharmacy.

Stone said that having a pharmacy next to the clinic provides patients with more complete access to care.

Stone was joined at the Grand Opening event by EMHS administrators and elected officials.

Susquehanna County Commissioner Elizabeth Arnold congratulated EMHS staffers for the clinic opening.

“It’s good to see organizations grow,” Arnold said. She said she had spoken with several longtime EMHS employees and said the longevity they have served in their positions “speaks to the leadership of the organization.”

Commissioner Judy Herschel noted that EMHS not only provides health care to county residents, but also serves as a provider of jobs. “EMHS is one of the backbones that make this community wonderful,” Herschel said.

In addition to the County Commissioners, Brittany Ucci of Rep. Jonathan Fritz’s office was also in attendance, as were representatives from the Susquehanna County Promotion & Tourism Agency.

Following the brief remarks, tours of the facility were offered. The clinic has five spacious patient rooms, as well as a welcoming reception area. The parking lot has ample spaces available for easy access to the clinic.

EMHS is a not-for-profit Corporation committed to the operation and development of a health system that will provide optimum care within the scope of its abilities. The key elements in the EMHS process are quality, service, safety, cost, flexibility and access.
