Maple City Health Care Center Celebrates New Grant
GOSHEN – Staff, volunteers, Board members and patients of Maple City Health Care Center are celebrating the good news of a new grant.
The Elkhart County Community Foundation awarded $25,000 to help equip Maple City Health Care Center’s new and renovated space.
The grant from Elkhart Community Foundation will help the Center purchase exam tables, medical equipment and furniture for new exam rooms and counseling space.
The new space is a result of a recent addition and renovation to the old North Side Fire Station that has served as a home for Maple City Health Care Center since it first opened in 1989. The building project added 1,600 square feet of new space and reconfigured old space. The project resulted in four new exam rooms, improved laboratory space, and added office space.
Maple City Health Care Center provides a medical home to people in north and east Goshen. More than a third of the Center’s patients have no insurance. A third lives on incomes under the Federal Poverty Line.
Dr. James Gingerich has served as family physician and director for the Center since it first opened.
“Prior to this building expansion, our employees and patients were packed in like sardines,” Dr. Gingerich said. “At times our patients had to wait just because all of the exam rooms were full. But the new exam rooms and office space without equipment are useless. Because of the generosity of people who donate to the Elkhart County Community Foundation, we’ll have exam tables and exam equipment for the new rooms.”
Elkhart County Community Foundation distributes grants to worthy causes in Elkhart County. In 2008, the Foundation awarded 509 grants & scholarships totaling $7.8 million.
Maple City Health Care Center will host an open house on September. Friends and neighbors may tour the renovated facility. People wanting more information may visit www.MCHCC.com.
