The Barbour Community Health Association will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its new Barbour Quick Care location in Belington.
The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, September 14, at 95 S. Crim Avenue, Belington. Area residents, families, and local businesses are invited to attend, meet the healthcare staff, and tour the new medical facility.
The organization opened its first Barbour Quick Care earlier last Fall in Philippi. It has been a convenient healthcare resource and well received by the local community, said Eric Ruf, CEO of the Barbour Community Health Association. “We are excited to open a second walk-in medical clinic to better serve residents in Barbour County and other surrounding rural areas,” Ruf said. “Like the first location, this new Barbour Quick Care will allow us to reach individuals who may not have the time to schedule a doctor’s appointment and get treatment for colds, influenza, scrapes, sore throats, and other non-life threatening illnesses. It also offers imaging, lab services, physicals, and immunizations for individuals and families in the community.”
The Barbour Quick Care in Belington will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. No one will be denied care at the new facility, as several programs are available for moderate and low-income families without health insurance or with high insurance deductibles. The new facility is located Across from Tygart Valley Supply in downtown Belington. Barbour Community Health Association purchased the building a few years ago and renovated it for their business offices and the new walk-in clinic.
In addition to the Barbour Quick Care in Belington, the Barbour Community Health Association operates several other health facilities in the area: Myers Clinic (116 McClellan Dr., Philippi), Belington Medical Clinic & Wellness Center (70 North Sturmer Street, Belington), Philippi Wellness Center (22 Columbia Street, Philippi), and the Brandon Wellness Center at Philip Barbour High School (99 Horseshoe Drive, Philippi). The organization also offers school-based health services at Philippi Elementary School, Junior Elementary School, Kasson Elementary-Middle School, Philippi Middle School, and Belington Elementary-Middle School.
