ABOVE (left to right): IPP Lion Doug Kayle, Lion Dr. John Smith and Lion Ken Cromer attended the dedication of the new Lorain County Health & Dentistry building on Monday, July 22.  It was a very nice event and Stephanie Wiersma, President & CEO of LCH&D, spoke very positive remarks about District 13B Lions who have raised $250,000 to equip the new vision clinic which will open in September or October of this year.

This is the front entrance.  What a remarkable transformation from November 2011 at the groundbreaking ceremony for the building construction.

Senator Sherrod Brown talks about the importance of community health centers within the health care environment in serving thousands of persons with limited or no access to other sources of medical services.
Lorain Mayor Chase Ritenauer stressed the value to the city of restoring a strategically located major building on the main entrance to the city on Broadway.  With more projects like this one, that require making bold decisions and taking risks, the city of Lorain will open the door to a better future.

This view shows the entrance to the Vision Clinic through the glass doors on the right and the waiting room on the left right beside the main entrance reception desk.

This was the ceremonial ribbon cutting.  The event was attended by more than 100 guests, including the VP of the National Association of Community Health Centers. Shawn Frick.
