March 20, 2017: The Community Health Center was awarded a grant to make much needed renovations to the Christiansburg facility. The changes are both aesthetic and mechanical and although primarily interior, will also include some exterior renovations:
- adding a sidewalk canopy covering,
- repaving and relining the parking area.
Interior renovations will consist of:
- renovated medical exam rooms with the addition of two new rooms,
- renovated and expanded laboratory,
- renovated nurse’s station,
- expanded reception area,
- renovated dental operatories with new dental chairs along with the addition of a new, 5th dental operatory,
- modernized lighting and a new HVAC system,
- new lobby and office furnishings.
The expected completion of the project is October, 2017. In the meantime, we will continue to provide all services in Christiansburg – just within a limited space.
We’re also happy to announce that we are expanding our dental clinic in our Giles Center in Pearisburg with the addition of another operatory and larger lab. We will remain fully operational in the Giles Center and we encourage you to stop by and see our facility.
If you have questions about changes at either Center, contact us. We will continue to provide updates about the renovations, so please check back regularly.
