According to Jeff Taylor, CEO of Oakhurst Medical Centers, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), "The expertise and knowledge of The Neenan Company in design and building a facility specific for our industry was outstanding. It was quite evident that as a construction company, they went well beyond just nails and 2×4's! In many instances, they had the same knowledge base regarding patient flow as any experienced physician practice."
The replacement clinic features 32 exam rooms, four dental operatories, and administration space. In addition to being the design‐builder, The Neenan Company also partnered with the community health center to secure a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
