Rural Express: Help coming for Spring Village Wellness Centre
Cecelia Campbell-Livingston, Gleaner Writer
Nurse Paulette Simms, who works at the Spring Village Wellness Centre, is a happy woman.
Since a feature was carried on her in Rural Xpress on January 3, with her expressing the desire for a dentist and doctor to volunteer their time at the facility, she said there is a ray of hope now on the horizon.
"The Rural Xpress story was picked up by The Breath of Change (TBC) radio, resulting in an on-air discussion, resulting in wonderful news."
"I got a call from a Sophia Thompson informing me that a dentist from California - Dr Harrison Bland is willing to come down and see a few patients," a happy Nurse Simms said.
Thompson is still working on trying to get doctors to volunteer their time at the centre.
"I have been getting a lot of positive feedback, but we still need more help," she said.
