WASHINGTON, DC –A community health center in Lucas County will be able to expand services as a result of new federal resources. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Neighborhood Health Association, Inc., a medical center serving Lucas County, received new resources from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support and develop primary care health services.
