Our East End Clinic expansion, opening on June 26, 2024, is a significant milestone in enhancing our ability to provide comprehensive healthcare. It’s not just about the additional space; this development means we can extend behavioral health services, substance use disorder treatment, and pharmacy services, alongside introducing new amenities like a fitness room and teaching kitchen. Importantly, the expansion is projected to allow us to serve over 60,000 patients annually, significantly increasing our impact on West Virginia’s underserved communities.

For an in-depth look at the expansion and its potential to transform healthcare provision in our state, check out the full article in our Impact Report.
