MT. JEWETT â€“ Where there's a need, there's a way to fill it.
That's the philosophy of the Bradford Regional Medical Center (BRMC), which held a ceremony Friday to mark the opening the new Mt. Jewett Health Center on West Main Street.
Timothy J. Finan, president and chief executiveÂ officer of BRMC and the Upper Allegheny Health System, said the construction of the Mt. Jewett facility is "a response to enhance access to patients we serve."
"We're responding to a need," he said.
