CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) A non-profit health clinic in Christiansburg now has more room for patients after a million dollar renovation.

Leaders of the Community Health Center of the New River Valley officially revealed the new changes during an open house and ribbon cutting Friday afternoon.

The center, which offers family medicine, behavioral health, and dental care, now has more exam rooms, an enhanced laboratory, and added more mental health counseling rooms.

"We've kept our free clinic roots in this community and we continue to see those people who really have no other health care provider to go to. And we're here for everyone. So we hope to be here for another 30 plus years," Michelle Brauns, the CEO of the health center.

A federal government grant helped pay for the renovations.

The health center also hired new staff because of the need and growth in the area.
