The Rockbridge Area Health Center has continued to grow and enhance its services, which include primary medical care, women’s health and prenatal care, pediatrics, family dentistry, behavioral health and medication assistance. The expanded services, as well as the increase in the number of patients served, has greatly impacted the health center’s space utilization. Within RAHC’s original one-story building, 5,000 patients were being served in a 9,000 sq. ft. facility that was not designed to house the full range of services that RAHC now provides.
Responding to the needs of the community, the RAHC Board of Directors in 2017 approved a $6.6 million building expansion project that included a second floor and an additional 13,000 sq. ft.
