The purpose of this grant is to support Bakersville Community Health Clinic, Inc.’s (BCHC) expansion of its Bakersville and Celo Health Center sites. BCHC, a federally qualified health center, plans to renovate existing space to expand services available in the communities it serves. The project expects to create 15-18 new jobs (medical, dental, behavioral health and administrative positions), increase patient visits and serve the occupational health needs of Mitchell County.
