In 2011, Hurricane Irene severely damaged a family health facility in a rural area of Ulster County. Nearly two years later, the health center has been rebuilt.

When the doctors at Maverick Family Health of Woodstock opened a new clinic - Maverick West - on Route 28 in Boiceville in February 2011, they did so as part of a mission to make quality medical care available to all reaches of rural Ulster County. Maverick Family Health Center co-director Dr. Randy Rissman says Hurricane Irene had other plans.
