Garrison Women’s Health Center has been the team sponsor for many years for the Dover, NH Green Waves, our local women’s soccer team!
Garrison Women’s Health has a strong commitment to helping non-profit causes in Dover, NH and the New Hampshire / Maine Seacoast community and abroad.
Over many years, our sponsorship has assisted many local efforts. Our most recent commitments have been to the following:
Garrison’s first physician, Dr. Hatch, partnered with Avis Goodwin to start a pre-natal clinic for the Dover area.
Since 1969, Garrison Women’s Health providers have provided obstetric services and performed obstetrical deliveries for this non-profit organization which provides healthcare services to the Dover community.
Avis-Goodwin serves individuals who are uninsured, among others, and payment is based on ability to pay. www.avisgoodwinchc.org
