Giles Center

The Giles Community Health Center is a satellite clinic of the Community Health Center of the New River Valley that is committed to providing valuable healthcare services to the uninsured, as well as those who are insured with Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. The Giles Center's intent is to expand access to healthcare for Giles residents who otherwise might have difficulty traveling to Christiansburg to receive medical, dental, pharmacy and behavioral health care services.

About the Giles Center

The Giles Center was founded in October, 2007, with a U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration Rural Health Outreach Grant.  When it opened, the Giles Center was only open 20 hours a week with a part-time practitioner.  Since then, the Giles Center has expanded to 40 hours of patient care per week serving 1,200 patients from Giles and Bland Counties and some West Virginia counties, providing over 18,000 visits.  The care is provided thanks to many local volunteer medical practitioners and the free services provided by Carilion Giles Community Hospital.

On May 13, 2011, the Giles Center was awarded a second HRSA grant totaling $540,000 over three years to create G-Net, a rural health network.  G-Net will integrate and expand access to primary and specialty healthcare services for the people of Giles County.  The target population will increase to include underserved children by broadening the scope of available services in the County to include health navigation, and by facilitating the addition of critical transportation services and cultural training of health professionals. For more information about G-NET and the services that each G-NET partner agency provides, please visit the G-NET Website or like G-NET on Facebook by clicking the following:

Giles Health Needs Assessment

In September 2011, the Giles Center received a federal grant from the US Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Primary Health Care, to conduct a year-long planning initiative around creation  of a Giles County Community Health Needs Assessment. The link below contains the findings of that needs assessment, including data on the target population and the geographic service area, primary data, secondary data, a health and human services inventory, an analysis of the environment of care, and a health service gap analysis.
