Grand Opening Of Health Center In Lyles, TN

Today is the grand opening of the Three Rivers Community Health Center in Lyles in the East Hickman County area. The clinic is a nonprofit organization and delivers medical care on a sliding scale which is based on the Federal Poverty Level.

According to information provided, U. S. census statistics show that more than 18.5% of people ages 18-64 have income below the U. S. poverty level and 20% lack health insurance. The addition of this clinic to the area will be a benefit to citizens that usually travel to Centerville, Dickson, or Columbia for medical care.
