The Health Support And Need Center opened Saturday in Fountain, Pitt County.
Jacqueline Newton, the CEO and founder of the clinic wanted the people of Fountain and those nearby to have access to care they may not otherwise be able to get due to a lack of transportation or not knowing how to find affordable health care.
We spoke with her about why the clinic is so important to the community: “Just because its a free clinic and they're getting free services, I believe its going to be the best services because they wont have to worry about co-pay they wont have to worry about their prescriptions. We will take care of all of that "
The clinic provides primary health care and is open to all Pitt County residents.
