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. The Buladean Community Health Clinic is now open in 2023 in partnership with the Buladean Community Foundation. 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.
