$200,000.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Halifax
Description:

This Golden LEAF grant provides funding to the Halifax Regional Medical Center (HRMC) to assist with the expansion of a Federally Qualified Health Center operated by Rural Health Group (RHG) that is co-located with the HRMC emergency room. Because patients who come to the emergency room can choose to seek care at RHG instead, the hospital reports a reduction in “inappropriate” use of the emergency department. To meet growing demand for RHG’s services, HRMC seeks to expand the clinic. The expansion is expected to result in 21 new positions at the clinic and increase patients seen at RHG by 2,500. Golden LEAF funds will be used for construction.
