Great Salt Plains Health Center to open a Canton location

As most residents are aware, The Great Salt Plains (GSP) Health Center has plans to open a medical clinic in Canton. As any new plans have a way of generating controversy, the announcement has come with its fair share. Unless residents have been attending town hall meetings, they may be completely out of the loop on the plans.
Great Salt Plains Health Center is based out of Cherokee, Oklahoma. They are a Federally Qualified Health center. This status makes them eligible to apply for grants under Section 330 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. The Act defines the Federal Health Center Program as the funding opportunity for organizations to provide care to underserved populations. Some of the benefits to health centers participating in this program include funding to help with the costs of uncompensated care and federal loan guarantees for facility improvement projects. The business must be a public entity or private non-profit group, for profit clinics are not eligible for the grants.
