Capstone Rural Health Center Primary location: 5947 Highway 269, Parrish, Alabama 35580 Executive Director: Dr. F. David Jones 205-832-8515 (p); 205-265-2994 (f) www.capstoneclinic.org Amount Requested: $725,000 Capstone Rural Health Center is requesting funds for a replacement clinic in Nauvoo, Alabama. The currently leased clinic is insufficient for space and accessibility. The new replacement clinic will have the additional square footage for additional providers, exam space, and better pharmacy space. Capstone Rural Health Center, a federally qualified health center, has served in this area since 2015 and treats patients from a wide geographical reach. This clinic will continue to provide medical care, pharmacy services, counseling services, and transportation in the service area. While the clinic serves residents with various insurance including Medicare and Medicaid it is uniquely positioned to serve the poor and uninsured on a sliding fee based upon income. The community is proud of its clinic and will be energized by the new facility. The Capstone Pharmacy-Nauvoo will also be relocated to the new facility. The Capstone Pharmacy-Nauvoo fills more than 2400 prescriptions each month. As a participant in HRSA’s 340B Drug Pricing Program, the pharmacy reduces the burden of medication costs for our uninsured patients. The pharmacy is currently located on the second floor of the clinic. Although Capstone ensures that all services are accessible to everyone, this location presents challenges. The new facility will be a single-level structure and will include a 500-square-foot pharmacy to adequately provide space for 1 pharmacist and 2 pharmacy technicians. The new Capstone-Nauvoo will have the capacity to lower the unmet needs of the low-income population by continuing progress to provide integrated care at the Nauvoo facility. More importantly, Capstone Rural Health Center will have the infrastructure to serve Nauvoo and north
ern Walker County for years to come. By relocating the current service site, Capstone Rural Health Center is able to continue to be a resource for this community to better serve this isolated section of Walker County.
