COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio — The Community Action Agency of Columbiana County recently opened a new dual building facility to offer healthcare more efficiently to the community.
"This facility will now have 10 rooms for healthcare, four rooms for behavioral health, we also offer medication assistant treatment programs for opioid addiction people to get intensive counseling, medication, and administration," CEO Tom Andrews said.
As one of 50 federally-regulated health centers across Ohio, the facility on St. Clair Avenue consists of 6,250 square feet of service area.
"No matter what you have, if you have private insurance we can serve you, if you have Medicaid, Medicare, we can serve you, if you don’t have health insurance we can serve you, as well," Andrews said.
Adding several services to its resume, the new dual building campus is in the position to serve all people -- no matter the need.
"If you don’t have income, we can serve you on a sliding scale, so you can afford it and we can put you on a payment plan. We also have some funds to help people that don’t have anything," Andrews said.
The goal is to meet all needs of the community, all in one place, with exam rooms, computer labs, dental facilities, meeting rooms and more.
"We’re here to serve the whole community,” Andrews said. “We serve the whole person."
Following the ribbon cutting Friday, the facility will be up and running Monday. The pharmacy will be available in August.
