Family First Health, which operates medical offices in York and Adams counties, has opened in downtown Columbia, Lancaster County, the York-based nonprofit’s first new location since 2009.
Opening an office on the other side of the Susquehanna River won’t benefit only people living in Lancaster County. It will also serve residents of eastern York County communities, including Wrightsville and Hellam Township.
Family First has seen a growing number of its patients come from those areas, as well as from Columbia and Mount Joy in Lancaster County, said Jenny Englerth, Family First’s CEO. Before, they would travel to Family First’s downtown York location.
