MANCHESTER >> An Open House and Community Celebration to commemorate the renovation of the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center's Northshire Campus is scheduled for 12 - 2 p.m. Sunday, July 24 at the practice, located at 5957 Main Street — Route 7A in Manchester.

The event will include a healthy barbecue and family fun, including kids' activities, games and prizes. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet providers and tour the building. The event is free and open to the public.

The renovated building includes a comfortable new waiting room, the addition of consultation rooms on the second floor, a new telemedicine-enabled room, and five new exam rooms, which allowed the addition of another provider.
