Starting June 5, Compass Health Network’s Children’s Center will open its doors to mid-Missourians.

Children will be able to go from their dental appointment to their doctor’s appointment and then to therapy — all under one roof. The Children’s Center, in eastern Columbia, will also offer limited vision care and psychiatric services.
