Big things are happening out east in the world of healthcare for the LBGTQ community.
The Edie Windsor Healthcare Center (EWHC), formerly known as the David E. Rogers, M.D. Center (in Southampton), officially reopened on June 11. It not only has a new location (Hampton Bays), it will have an expanded facility and purpose — to serve as Long Island’s first comprehensive LGBTQ Health Center.
That means that in addition to continuing to provide support and health and care management to people living with HIV/AIDS and HIV testing through The Rose Walton Services — a cornerstone of the facility since it opened in 1994 — the center will now include primary care services and expanded mental health services for all members of the LGBTQ community.
