Mercy Health System opened a new family practice today in Falmouth.

West Falmouth Primary Care, a department of MercyHospital, is located at 66 Leighton Road. Its staff specializes in primary and preventive care, according to the hospital.

Mercy has been expanding outpatient clinics and services while cutting back on staff at its Portland hospital. A new Mercy primary and express care center recently opened in Gorham and another is scheduled to open early next year in the Yarmouth and Cumberland area.
