Crossville celebrates new public health center

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Crossville has a new public health center.

According to a news release from the state Health Department, Cumberland County's new Community Health Center replaces an outdated clinic built in 1966. At 30,000 square feet, the new facility is more than twice as large as the former building.

The Cumberland County Health Department provides primary care, immunizations, well child visits and health screenings, among other services. As a federally qualified health center, the clinic provides primary care services to all patients regardless of ability to pay.

Last year it served nearly 30,000 patients, 72 percent of whom were uninsured.

The health center was built with federal, state and local dollars, including a $4.5 million grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.
