Claire Goyer and Elyse DeGroot of the Duffy Health Center in Hyannis share a moment at the site of Duffy’s original location at 105 Park St. with original Duffy staffers Judy Lavigniac, Joe Gatto, and Dr. Arthur Bickford before DeGroot took Lavigniac, Gatto, and Bickford on a hard hat tour of the future site of Duffy’s new facility on Main Street in Hyannis. The trio were part of the original clinic, then called the O’Neill Clinic, at one time attached to the NOAH Shelter in Hyannis. The new facility, which will allow all of Duffy’s three offices to be housed in one location, is expected to open in January. “They’re making great progress,” said Gatto. “I drive by here every day and have seen it go from a hole in the ground to this. It’s great.”
