Phase I Construction Complete: Clinical Services Begin in New Wing of Family Counseling Center’s Broadway Location
The Family Counseling Center has opened its doors to the Phase I 18,500 sq. foot addition to their 11-21 Broadway location with staff and client services moving into the new space this week. Phase II construction, the renovation of the organization’s existing 9,000 sq. foot building, will begin by the end of the month. The full project will triple the size of the facility, allowing for agency staff and administration to provide expanded mental health services, crisis services, addiction services, and primary care services under one roof at the Broadway location.
“We are excited to be transitioning from the building of the Phase I new construction to the Phase II renovations of our existing building, allowing us to have a seamless flow of staff and services in one facility,” the Family Counseling Center’s Executive Director Michael Countryman said. “We are overwhelmed with the support we have received from the community, making this healthcare facility a reality. It is a beautiful building to work in and receive services in. We are also happy to continue to call the City of Gloversville home.”
The expansion project is part of Family Counseling Center’s Building a Healthy Community campaign in partnership with Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP) and others. The expansion of both space and services will provide additional support to the over 6,500 clients residing in Fulton, Montgomery, Hamilton, northern Schoharie, Herkimer, Schenectady, and western Saratoga counties. Family Counseling Center also provides assistance to patients throughout New York State through its telemedicine program.
The Family Counseling Center of Fulton County has been serving the community since 1976 and ensures a broad range of superior, quality, evidence-based, behavioral support and social services to the community. The Center is licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health, providing services to children as young as five years old.
