Eastville Capital Campaign – Built By the Community, For the Community
A $150,000 matching grant has just been awarded to Eastern Shore Rural Health by The Cabell Foundation. This is a one dollar-to-one dollar match – please help us raise the match!
We are replacing the aging Bayview and Franktown Community Health Centers with a new medical and dental facility conveniently located on Route 13 in Eastville. The total cost of the new center is an estimated $11.5 million. The new center is anticipated to open in late 2019. Construction progress pics are below!
The new facility will have more than 24,000 square feet compared to the 13,700 square feet that the current Bayview and Franktown have combined. By consolidating the two centers we will be able to offer a state-of-the-art facility that will provide potential expanded hours to include 10-hour days and Saturday hours, digital x-ray, expanded lab services and hours, potential telemedicine and additional providers and staff. Digital x-ray is currently not at either facility. Additionally, the current Franktown has dental services, but Bayview does not, so the new center will allow residents in the southern part of Northampton County increased access to dental care.
Donations of $1000 or more will be listed on a recognition board in the waiting room. Community clubs and churches donating $500 or more will be recognized in a special community groups display.
