Several new jobs are headed to Pittsylvania County in Chatham as Piedmont Access to Health Services, Inc. announced Wednesday they are relocating and expanding.
The project will create 21 new full-time jobs in the former Hampco building.
The Danville Regional Foundation provided a $500,000 grant, the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission awarded a $90,000 Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund (TROF) grant and Pittsylvania County/Town of Chatham awarded a $15,750 Industrial Enhancement Grant to assist with this project.
“Ensuring all Virginians have access to quality, affordable health care is a top priority for Governor Northam, which is why we are proud to support the growth of PATHS in the Town of Chatham,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Trade for Rural Economic Development Cassidy Rasnick. “PATHS has provided invaluable health care services to the citizens of Southern Virginia for nearly 20 years, and this expansion will expand those services while creating new jobs in the region. We thank the organization for its significant contributions to the region’s healthcare, and congratulate them on this expansion.”
PATHS is a non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to provide healthcare to all citizens in South Central Virginia regardless of their ability to pay.
