Rockbridge Area Health Center gets loan for expansion
The Rockbridge Area Health Center received a 4-point-6 million dollar loan from the Department of Agriculture.
It's part of a larger funding plan for renovations and expansion of their clinic. When done, the building they’re in now will have a second story, more than doubling the floor space available.
“You know, we’re excited," says Michele Hentz, who's the Chief Financial Officer of the Rockbridge Area Health Center. "We know we’ll have a little inconvenience, but the nice thing is that we will not be stopping or ceasing operations during the construction. We will be serving our patients. We will not be closed at any point during the construction.”
They expect to start getting bids next month and start work at the beginning of the new year.
