Expansion project underway at The Hope Center


    MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The expansion project at The Hope Center is officially underway.

    Construction has started on the 8,000 square foot addition to the facility located on Emery Highway.

    The Hope Center provides HIV primary and special needs care to people in the area.

    The new facility will be a one stop shop, offering patients additional services including access to a dental clinic, a behavioral health wing, a conference center for support group meetings and community events.

    The facility’s housing services will also expand allowing people who are homeless a place to stay while they are receiving treatment.

    The center also provides transportation for its patients.

    “People have a hard enough time getting to one appointment, we are going to give them the opportunity to get to the facility and get as much as they can out of that visit,” says Dale Wrigley, Director of the Hope Center.

    The Hope Center is an entity of the North Central Health District which serves 13 counties in Middle Georgia.

    The expansion project is expected to be complete within the next year.
