Construction continues on Lynchburg health clinic

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Construction continues on the new community health center in Lynchburg.

The clinic is a partnership between including Centra, Johnson Health, Horizon Behavioral Health and the Free Clinic of Lynchburg. Services for those with mental and behavioral health will be available as well.

The goal is to provide better and a wider range of services to the under and uninsured.

"Lynchburg has one of the most frequently utilized emergency departments in the state. Many people use those emergency departments because they don't have access to primary care," Lynchburg Free Clinic CEO Christina Delzingaro said.

The health center is set to open in December.
