ABC Medical Center, in partnership with Interfaith Healthcare Ministries, is ope

ABC Medical Center, in partnership with Interfaith Healthcare Ministries, is opening a free clinic to help provide primary care services and chronic disease management services for the uninsured and alleviate some of the strain on the hospital’s emergency room. The initial proposal for the facility layout is based on a similar clinic operating in Lynchburg, Virginia. However, an operations analyst at the Roanoke Medical Center has proposed an alternative layout that is believed to provide efficiency savings over the initial proposal. While the clinic is not yet operational, deposits have already been placed with contractors to implement the initial layout. As a result, switching room the locations will cost $8,000 each, with the exception of the dental and vision care areas, which will cost $15,000 to move.
