Tangipahoa council supports proposed clinic


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 ( ) Access Health Louisiana has clinics in a number of parishes, including Washington and St. Tammany.
