Reprieve for state health centers; Twenty-six scheduled for closure, including Pike

As for the center in Pike County, DOH spokesperson Aimee Tysarczyk wrote in an email, “The Pike County state health center office was planned for a move to Monroe County. Under the department’s state health center modernization plan, services will still be available in Pike County even if the office moves. Services will be provided through regularly scheduled events in the community close to where people live and work, such as at community centers or schools, to provide easier and increased access to these services. We will also provide services at home, as needed, such as tuberculosis services. No one will have to leave Pike County to receive services. We are by no means going away.”
