Health clinic coming to Delhi in hopes of improving health access and care

Livingston Community Health is expanding its health services to Delhi in an effort to add care options with greater convenience.


Starting in April, Delhi residents will be able to stay close to home while visiting a Livingston Community Health clinic, said Allison Jeffery, Livingston Community Health’s director of administrative services.

Last year, other Livingston Community Health locations served 3,200 patients from Delhi, said Isela Kloeppel, director of operations for Livingston Community Health.
