Increasing Access to Primary Care Providers through Collaboration and Partnership

Organization:
Kinston Community Health Center, Inc.
Amount:
$260,598.63
Program Area:
Community Assistance Initiative
County of Applicant:
Lenoir
Description:

This grant will help the Kinston Community Health Center (KCHC) address an acute shortage of primary care physicians and provide a dentist to staff the Center. This shortage is hindering KCHC’s ability to carry out their mission to provide quality and accessible health care to patients who are primarily uninsured and Medicaid recipients. Golden LEAF funds will assist with approximately 30% of the first year’s salaries and benefits of three primary care providers, one OB/GYN and one dentist and recruitment costs. The salaries will be sustained by KCHC’s ability to bill third parties and collect fees from self paying patients.
