Last week, on Wednesday, September 15, the North Hudson Community Action Corporation had to shut down one of its health centers in North Hudson. The Health Center located in North Bergen, on the first floor of 1112 43rd Street, was asked to leave its rented space by the Township of North Bergen. According to NHCAC President and CEO Joan Quigley, who spoke to Hudson TV via telephone, the Township needed the added space for its Health Department, which occupies the second floor of the building.
Quigley said NHCAC is looking for space somewhere in North Bergen to replace the services vacated. “We have a potential lead on a new site,” she said.
In the meantime, Quigley is encouraging residents who have utilized the services of the North Bergen Health Center, to visit the center located in Union City High School, which is located about a mile south on Kennedy Boulevard.
Quigley apologized for any inconvenience the closure has caused.
