AMITE, La. (AP) — The Tangipahoa Parish Council has unanimously agreed to a proposed Access Health Louisiana clinic designed for those without health insurance or in a low-income bracket.
Mark F. Keiser, executive director of the company, says establishing and staffing a health clinic in the parish depends on Access Health Louisiana's ability to win a federal grant.
Keiser said the company plans to apply for a $650,000 grant in August, and if the grant is awarded, the company would move quickly to open a clinic, preferably in a 4,000-square-foot building.
He said Monday the company has not yet settled on a location for the clinic.
Keiser tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1nQw0Vq ) Access Health Louisiana has clinics in a number of parishes, including Washington and St. Tammany.
