October was certainly a busy month in terms of events, and the biggest of all was our Annual Meeting at the Team Time Social Club. Looking back, CMHA has slightly flown under the radar for years, providing the highest quality treatment services, but without the same recognition or fanfare as our counterparts. This year marked a turning point: care is integrated, sites are consolidated, and we're known across the community as the provider of choice.
Over the past year alone, CMHA has completed three major property acquisition and renovation projects: relocating the Waterbury Outpatient Clinic to a larger, more accessible location, purchasing and renovating 233 Main Street in downtown New Britain to house over 40 programs and 200 staff, as well as finishing the state-of-the-art Team Time Social Club on Russell Street in New Britain.
Throughout all the moves and challenges, staff continued to show why CMHA is special. CMHA provides more than just treatment - we deliver individualized, compassionate, world class care.
This year's Chairman's Award recipients, the Team Time Social Club staff (below) and Clinical Director Ann Lavoie, embody those features of CMHA. Our commitment to excellence brought us to where we are today, and it will take us into the future as well. Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Meeting; we look forward to what we can accomplish next year together.
