OHF provides other support for health care in our community.
HEALTH CENTER BUILDINGS
Since 1956, when a group of community members came together, there has been a sense that having a health center in Woodstock provided a public benefit to the community. We have continued to support that notion through many changes in health care delivery: from the building of the clinic building in the back in 1974, to turning over of operation of the clinic to Dartmouth Hitchcock in 1997; to the removal of emergency services and lab processing at the site; to the passing along of clinic operation to Mt. Ascutney Hospital & Health Center in 2007. By having a health center nearby, with primary care providers, specialists who come through as well as the other health providers in the two buildings, is a community asset available to all.
Below Market Rent for Non-profit Health Providers
The Foundation offers below market rent to its non-profit tenants in its two buildings. This is possible in part due to the Town and Village of Woodstock providing property tax exemption for the Foundation’s property.
Conference Space for Local Non Profits
OHF makes its conference room available at no cost to its non-profit tenants and as available, to other community non-profits.
Technical Assistance to Health Organizations
The Foundation provides technical assistance to health organizations attempting to improve their service delivery.
Ottauquechee Health Network
OHF hosts a quarterly network lunch of community health coordinators to foster collaboration.
