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 (MAHHC) in 2007, and to selling the Health Center in 2013 to D.E. Wells Construction, INC. with MAHHC continuing to provide health care services.
Below Market Rent for Non-profit Health Providers
The Foundation offers below market rent to its non-profit tenants and health care providers in Simmons House. 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 Initiatives
OHF hosts and supports community health forums and events to address current community health needs.
