GARDEN CITY - A new health clinic has opened in Garden City that aims to make it easier for Sept. 11 responders to get the specialized health care they need. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held today for the opening of the World Trade Center Health Program satellite location, located at Winthrop University's Wellness Pavilion. The facility features state-of-the-art services for Sept. 11 responders who are suffering from a range of conditions. Previously, volunteers who assisted on Sept. 11 had to travel to Manhattan or to Stony Brook University Medical Center to be treated for serious ailments linked to the toxic dust at Ground Zero.
