Rural Health Care Gets a Boost

Almost one in three adults living in rural America is considered to be in poor or only fair health.

A new grant from the Department of Agriculture Rural Development and Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative should help these underserved areas.

The two groups presented a check for $120,000 to A&A Healthcare in Wewahitchka.

Amy Miller of A&A says the company works with patients who are unable to leave their home.

"What it means is people can come home to get well versus having to stay in the hospital or an in-patient home. It means they can come home with their loved ones. They just like to go come home to get well."

A&A hopes to use the money to add 14 new employees and build a medical record room with the money.
