NEWPORT — Northern Express Care, a collaboration between Northern Counties Health Care and North Country Hospital, held its grand opening in Newport on Friday. Located at 137 Main Street, the walk-in care center was an idea that has been in the works for just shy of a year and a half. With that goal finally brought to fruition, the doors will officially open to the community on Monday, July 11. “Bringing walk-in primary care to the downtown is a really big deal for the Newport community,” NCHC Chief Strategy Officer Chris Towne said. “We really want the community to know that we are here to support them.”
