BRISTOL — Since 2005, the Bristol-based health care advocacy group Five Town Health Alliance, or 5THA, has sought to provide broader and cheaper primary care to Addison County residents.
Beginning next week, the organization will take its biggest stride yet in accomplishing this goal, as it teams up with Mountain Health Center to create a new non-profit health center in Bristol.
