Northside Richmond center hopes to close gap in healthcare disparities
RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond non-profit is preparing to open a new health center on the city's northside and hopes to close the gap on some healthcare disparities in the area.
HandsUp plans to deposit resources for the community by transforming an old bank building into a new community health hub. The concept is a vision that CEO and founder Augusta Hite has been dreaming about for years.
"Installing a free clinic. We will have a pharmacy, a non-profit pharmacy that would offer low-cost medication, free medication. An education and consultation component. Will partner with community food banks to have a farmer's market in the parking lot," Hite said.
