The Northwest Community Health Center recently received two federal grants that will help establish a satellite office in Troy.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services gave two grants totaling $970,982 to the Libby-based center so it can expand the services it offers in Troy. The grants were part of $500 million doled out because of the Affordable Care Act.

The money will be used to build a 3,830-square-foot facility in Troy that is nearly three times the size of the current office. When complete, the office will also be open Monday through Friday, as opposed to only a few days a week that it is open now. “The planned increase of space will provide the ability to potentially increase the scope of services within the organization’s delivery model and are not currently being provided in this location,” officials said in a press release.

The expansion is expected to serve more than 300 medical users and 100 behavioral health users.
