Primary Health Care Center CEO Diana Allen accepted the Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation’s $100,000 award from outgoing Chairman Arnold Johnson at a luncheon in Duluth, GA on February 18th.
The funds will be used to assist with start-up of a new site in Chattooga County, Georgia. Upon the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)’s release of additional funding for new access points, PHCC will apply for the additional grant dollars to assist with the development of this new site in Summerville.
Late last year Primary Health Care Center had conducted a "town-hall" type meeting to find out information from the community regarding the opening of a clinic in Chattooga County. The non-profit organization currently operates clinics in Rossville and Trenton in Northwest Georgia.
