In 1975, the clinics first offices were temporarily set up in a trailer at Slemp, KY. A growing patient load soon required a larger building for them. So, a new building was built in 1976 at Cornettsville, KY. The clinic sets on a two-acre site which was purchased from Irene and Denver Miniard for the sum of $10,000. The Miniard's saw that there was a great need for ground to build the new center on. Even though it was a part of the Miniard Farm, they agreed to sell this piece of land so that all the people in the area would have better access to health care.
The patient load continued to grow requiring the addition of an Emergency room, more treatment rooms, a Radiology Department and Dental offices which were added to the clinic in 1999. A year later in 2000, a Wellness center was built. This addition was made to meet the needs of the patients in helping them to approach health care in a different way, by adding exercise to their overall health care outlook.
The center's physicians treat the healthcare needs of around 13,000 patients per year. Their patients come from Letcher, Perry, Knott, Harlan and Leslie counties, with the majority of the patients coming from Letcher and Perry counties. The offering of a sliding pay scale makes the location of the center even more attractive to patients, especially those that are uninsured. The center also leases space to an on-site pharmacy, and East Kentucky Physical Therapy.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Leatherwoodblackey Med Clinic website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
