CAMPTON, Ky. (WYMT) A dedication and open house was held Monday for a new medical facility.
The Wolfe County Medical Plaza in Campton will house both Kentucky River Community Care and Saint Joseph Primary Care Clinic.
The facility will merge mental health and physical healthcare in one setting.
"This is an opportunity for people in this community to get specialty care without having to travel long distances. KentuckyOne Health will be using tele-medicine as well as having people on site to work with patients regarding their health needs," said Michael Kadish, the executive director at KRCC.
Officials say partnerships like these are critical due to doctor shortages.
