Southampton, NY – On Thursday, May 18th, New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele visited the HRHCare Kraus Family Health Center in Southampton (located on the Southampton Hospital campus at 330 Meeting House Lane). Led by HRHCare President and CEO Anne Kauffman Nolon, and joined by Shinn Estate Vineyard founders Barbara Shinn and David Page, the tour gave the Assemblyman a chance to see the state-of-the-art facility, and learn more about the high-quality primary and preventive health services for which HRHCare is known.
“I was pleased to join with President and CEO Anne Nolon and her staff to tour the HRHCare Kraus Family Health Center in Southampton,” said Assemblyman Fred Thiele. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, the health center in Southampton provides the full range of primary health services to more than 4800 patients, including veterans and seniors. The center is a critical link to needed health care for underserved and vulnerable members of the South Fork community. I was impressed not only with the quality of services offered, but also the professional and friendly atmosphere. The facility demonstrates the improvements that we have made in our goal to provide access to quality health care to East End residents, regardless of means.”
