BC Health & Wellness donates $20K to G’town HealthSource

On Wednesday, Nov. 9, Dale Cahall, chair for the Brown County Health and Wellness Foundation, presented a check for $20,000 to the new HealthSource Ohio facility, scheduled to open at the end of the year.
“We are very excited about how quickly this facility is going up,” said Lisa Jackson, vice president of marketing and development for HealthSource of Ohio.
“This donation from the Health and Wellness Foundation will go a long way in helping in our services here at HealthSource. It will be put to good use.”
Cahall, who is also the Mayor of Georgetown said  the Health and Wellness Foundation members wanted to make the contribution to HealthSource as a commitment from the community.
Groundbreaking on the new HealthSource Ohio building was held earlier this year at the end of April. The cost of the 10,000 square foot facility was $2.6 million to be constructed at 631 East State Street in Georgetown. Anticipated date for opening was November.
The new facility will include a new family practice physician expanding to take care of more people in the community, according to Healthsource CEO Kim Patton. The facility will be partnering with Child Focus to provide additional services.
The new HealthSource plans on serving up to 2,800 new patients and will contain laboratory services and will offer extended after-hours.
Prior to the check presentation, Cahall was given a tour of the new facility which is being completed.
The facility includes;
• A large lobby/ waiting room;
• A special Kids Korner;
• A special area for Child Focus to set up to serve not only children but adults and families;
• Pods on each side of the building to serve as examining rooms, with at least 6 rooms in each;
• An area to serve the 4 physicians on staff;
• Nurses stations under a large skylight;
• One side for pediatricians, the other for family medicine;
• A Flex-Care unit, for after-hour and weekend patients, with its own entrance.
“The Village of Georgetown is proud to have this new facility,” Cahall said. “It will be a real asset to the community.
