RIDGEWAY (WSLS10) – A new clinic is opening in the Ridgeway area due to a nearly one-million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The new clinic will cater to people living on a tight budget.

“A lot of our patients have to decide ‘am I going to buy my medicine this month or pay my light bill?’” said Mandy Brannock, the operations director for the Martinsville Henry County Coalition of Health and Wellness.

To better serve people living on restricted incomes, a $950,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is helping the MHC Coalition for Health and Wellness build a new clinic in Ridgeway.

“Ridgeway is just like any other area in Henry County where there is a lot of need,” said Brannock, “and, we’re hoping to meet that need by opening a new facility.”
