Hamlin Family Health Center Grand Opening!

A ribbon cutting was held on July 26th marking the official opening of the Hamlin Family Health Center and Wayne Memorial Hospital Outpatient Services in Hamlin.  Our Clinical Coordinator, Dr. William R. Dewar, III was in attendance to help celebrate. And our long time preceptor, Dr. David Wood is the new family physician for the Center. Dr. Wood is highly respected by his colleagues and the medical students whom he mentors. We look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Wood at his new location!

The Hamlin Family Health Center is open Monday through Friday for primary care, urgent care needs, women’s health, X-ray and laboratory services.  Expanded hours are soon to be announced! Hamlin Family Health Center is located along Route 191 south of Hamlin Corners, in the former Hamlin Elementary School. The address is 519 Easton Turnpike.
