Bassett Healthcare’s in-school clinic at Milford Central School was christened the “Wildcat Wellness Center” at a reception Saturday, Feb. 12, in honor of the school’s mascot.
Seventh-grader Brooke Sanford came up with that in a clinic-naming contest.
Milford’s school-based health center, opened last April, is one of 18 Bassett school-based health centers in Chenango, Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie counties; last year, they logged 21,000 visits.
