Jenny Mitchell, nurse practitioner and founder of the Needlerock Family Health Clinic in Crawford, received a much needed donation last Wednesday from Oxbow Group. A $5,000 check was presented to Mitchell by Mike Ludlow, Oxbow executive vice president, and Steve Lewis, manager of human resources.
The Needlerock Family Health Clinic moved a modular building onto the Elm Street lot in May. The lot was purchased with a grant. An X-ray unit is planned for the future. The new clinic will offer a much larger and secure clinic than the previous one in downtown Crawford. The clinic will have a reception area with security, a kitchen, examining rooms, a lab to draw blood, a restroom, an office for Mitchell and a bedroom and bathroom for visiting medical personnel or for Mitchell if she gets snowed in. The interior design includes ample natural sunlight from windows and skylights.
Electrician Aron Cegielski donated his labor for the renovation. Other work has been done by Mitchell's husband and from inmate work teams from Delta County Correctional facility.
Mitchell has to be moved in by Nov. 1. As of last Wednesday, the clinic needed interior walls, flooring, doors, counters and the ceiling.
The check from the Oxbow Group was to Needlerock Family Health Clinic for "superior support for the community." blog comments powered by Disqus
