BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia’s U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins says Community Health Systems in Beckley has received more than $2 million to health care services to rural West Virginians.

The grant is from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

According to Jenkins, the clinic and others like it fill a gap for low-income residents who need consistent access to care in southern West Virginia.

The state’s congressional delegation last week announced another $19 million from the federal agency would fund primary care services at 12 other clinics across the state.
