MetroPlusHealth 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 MetroPlusHealth Community Office, 953 Southern Boulevard, at East 163rd Street, (Get Directions), Bronx.
