A new neighborhood health center officially opened its doors in South Jeffco.

The West Littleton Neighborhood Health Center, located on the corner of West Coal Mine Avenue and Kipling Parkway, offers primary care and emergency services, as well as mammography, medical imaging, bone density and laboratory services. The new health center joined with Littleton-Chatfield Family Medicine and Clement Park Family Medicine.

According to a prior interview with Michael Brendel, chief operating officer at Centura-managed Littleton Adventist Hospital, the center is on a parcel large enough to accommodate continued growth. A medical office building and additional specialty doctors might be added in the future.

The health center will celebrate its grand opening with a neighborhood block party from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
