MetroPlus Health Plan, joined by local Bronx leaders and community residents, officially opened its new flagship Bronx community office with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and toy distribution. Deputy Bronx Borough President Marricka Scott-McFadden was on hand to help the health plan cut the ribbon at its new community-based office in the Longwood section of the Bronx. A fun-filled holiday event with toys and healthy treats, the grand opening also offered free dental screenings for children, teens, and young adults, ages 2-20. The event was held on Wednesday, December 12th, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the MetroPlus Community Office, 953 Southern Boulevard, at East 163rd Street, (Get Directions), Bronx.
MetroPlus has significantly expanded its presence in local communities this year. The health plan has opened two new offices in Manhattan and one in Staten Island, in addition to the multiple locations already in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. MetroPlus can also be found at kiosks or offices within all NYC Health + Hospitals facilities, as well as at community partner locations.
