St. Johnsbury — new Northern Express Care Clinic is open

ST. JOHNSBURY — A ribbon-cutting celebration was held on Thursday to signal the official opening of the Northern Counties Health Care Northern Express Care Clinic in the former Caplan’s Army Store building. Staff at the clinic welcomed the first patients on Friday morning into the renovated space that features an all-new interior, converted from a wide-open floor space – used for decades to feature the Caplan’s store merchandise – into walled offices, treatment rooms and a large waiting room highlighted by a wall dedicated to the building’s past. Thursday’s celebration was well-attended as a crowd of people gathered outside the building at 457 Railroad St. to witness the ribbon-cutting and hear remarks from several people. Inside was a reception with food and beverages and a chance for people to take a tour of the space that was extensively renovated in under six months by Barnet-based Graves Builders.
