The new Mountainlands Community Health Center is a hop, skip and 1.5-mile jump from the old clinic site.
It’s now been at its new home on south State Street for almost two months, and the clinic is reveling in all of the extra space it has to treat people and the resources it has to offer.
Now it needs more people.
“We do have room in our schedules where we have not in the past, and we’re trying to fill those up with anybody as best as we can,” said executive director Todd Bailey.
It’s not that they’re not treating people already; the clinic, which is geared mostly toward people without health insurance, has about 12,000 patients annually. About 13 percent of the clients have insurance and about 76 percent are Hispanic.
