Ribbon Cutting & Open House Event for New Dutchess County Department of Health Location

Poughkeepsie, NY... On Friday, June 28th at 4pm, the Dutchess County Department of Health will host a Ribbon Cutting and Open House event at its new location in the Poughkeepsie Journal building located at 85 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 106 in the City of Poughkeepsie. The public is invited to attend the Open House to tour the new facility and enjoy light refreshments. The event will be held in partnership with the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The Department of Health’s new location includes the Public Health Nursing, Environmental Services and the Administration divisions, as well as the Early Intervention and Preschool Special Education Programs and the Division of Veterans Services.

The new 29,000 square foot office space has been designed for the specific needs of the Health Department. The design provides greater operational efficiency and improved work flow. This efficient design actually allowed the Department to reduce their overall square footage needs. The new location is projected to save the County more than $500,000 over the next five years.

All are invited to the Ribbon Cutting and Open House event.  The Department of Health entrance is located at the rear of the Poughkeepsie Journal building. For more information, contact Eileen Duncan at 486-3431.
