BATESVILLE – July 22, 2013 – The Citizens Bank recently donated office furniture that will allow the Christian Health Center to open a new clinic in Batesville by January 2014.

Christian Health Center provides medical services to uninsured members of the community, plus medicines and pastoral counseling.  Its goal is to offer comprehensive care by not only providing for the physical needs but also for the spiritual and emotional concerns.

“Citizens Bank is pleased to assist the Christian Health Center with these furnishings to help them relocate into a permanent facility and broaden their services to the people of Independence County,” said John Dews, Citizens Bank President and Chief Executive Officer. 

“Our new site will allow us to expand our medical and educational services, and operate more efficiently,” said Deborah Frazier, Board Chair for Christian Health Center.  “We are grateful to Citizens Bank for this donation – and also to Believers Church, which has been allowing us to operate our clinic in their facility.  We are so encouraged by the generosity of the community.”

“We are proud to do what we can to help make Batesville a healthier place for all and provide the necessary services to many of our neighbors who need it most,” Dews said.
