Residents of Desert Hot Springs and leadership from across the valley and county turned out in large numbers to witness the Grand Opening of the Desert Hot Springs Community Health and Wellness Center, located at 11-750 Cholla Drive.

Mayor Yvonne Parks welcomed the crowd, then Pastor Bruce Montgomery gave the invocation.
Speakers were Congressman Raul Ruiz, MD, House of Representatives – California’s 36th District, California State Assemblyman V. Manuel Perez, Riverside County Supervisor John Benoit, Desert Healthcare District Board of Directors President Dr. Glen Grayman, and Honorable Judge Douglas Miller, who is President of the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley.

Following closing remarks by Mayor Parks, ribbon cuttings were held for both the Health and Wellness Center and the Boys and Girls Club, and there was a reception in the wellness room and an open house of the entire facility, which includes state of the art dental offices.
