Elkmont clinic may receive $75,000 to expand services
ELKMONT — Elkmont's clinic could get $75,000 to expand services.
U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer, D-Huntsville, said Tuesday that the House approved the conference report for the Fiscal 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations bill.
The bill includes $75,000 for the renovation and expansion of the Limestone Community Care Medical Facility.
The clinic accepts monthly payments from those with-out insurance and treats walk-ins.
Farmers who get injured on the job and senior citizens depend on its services.
The clinic's expansion includes X-ray machines, EKG equipment, cardiac monitors and other medical equipment upgrades.
"As the Elkmont community continues to grow, it is vital that health officials there have the facilities and resources to continue to provide their essential services to those who need it the most," Cramer said.
The conference report now moves to the Senate for consideration.
