The Center for Rural Health Innovation (CRHI) has opened two community health clinics, which are available to area residents no matter their insurance status. After several years of planning and attempts to find funding and a reasonable, sustainable structure for the program, the Tipton Hill Clinic, located in Mitchell County, finally opened in early 2017. Thanks to a generous donation through a local couple’s estate, the Outland Family Clinic in the Ebbs Chapel community of Madison County was opened in 2021. Within these clinics, area residents can receive acute care, such as cold, flu, strep and COVID tests. They can also be seen for minor injuries rather than having to visit urgent care centers, which helps to lower patient costs and free up those centers for more emergency related treatments. Issues relating to diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, and anxiety can also be treated at the clinic.
