With this grant, the Blue Ridge Healthcare Foundation will create new primary care locations for Medicaid recipients and the uninsured of Burke County, which will create new jobs and keep Medicaid revenue in the County. Blue Ridge Healthcare and the Good Samaritan Clinic will partner with AccessCare and the Department of Social Services to create a new Medicaid family practice. The project is expected to create 7 new FTE positions in Burke County, increase annual Medicaid revenue in Burke County by $1,000,000 by 2014 and reduce usage of local emergency departments for primary care by an estimated 15% by 2014.
