For more than 25 years, the Ottauquechee Health Foundation has fostered health and wellness in the towns we serve through support for education and initiatives and grants to help our neighbors get the health care they need.
OHF began as a health center in the Simmons House in Woodstock in the 1950s. The foundation moved to the current health center building in 1974. In 1996, health service delivery was taken on by Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and the Foundation was created to focus on providing grants and supporting access to health care.
Over the years, additional changes have been made to improve delivery of care at the clinic, including transferring operation to Mt. Ascutney Hospital & Health Care Center in 2007. In order to focus strictly on healthcare, the building was sold in 2013.
Today, OHF helps people with limited financial resources to access health and wellness services they might not otherwise receive, including medical care, dental care and dentures, hearing aids, eyeglasses, counseling and caregiver support.
