Spreading the wealth for new health clinics


Council Speaker Christine Quinn, center, and Councilmember Rosie Mendez, right, met Dr. Dennis Peng, dental division director at Betances Health Center, on a tour of the center at 280 Henry St. last Friday. The visit is part of Quinn’s push to create 10 state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, expanding primary care in high-need communities. Under Quinn’s proposal, the city would invest more than $7 million in the clinics.
