A Knoxville community will get a brand new clinic as a result of President Obama's healthcare plan.
Cherokee Health Systems received an $875,000 grant to help build a new facility in East Knoxville.
There will be 3 doctors and a pair of nurse practitioners on staff.
Local health centers play a significant part in the president's plan, and organizers say this is a critical way to help undeserved communities receive quality care.
"We'll provide access to people who probably haven't had access before. We predict we'd probably see about 3,000 people in that clinic, and about 10,000 visits annually," said Dennis Freeman with Cherokee Health.
"They don't turn people away. People pay according to means, so this is really a terrific aspect of our insurance system. So anyone can come here and get first class primary quality care," said Jay Angoff with the Department of Health and Human Services.
More than 200 communities around the country will receive similar grants to build health clinics.
