GPSA for Health is continuing to grow. Next summer, we will open our first U.S. site in McDowell and Mingo Counties in West Virginia.
Williamson, in Mingo County, is along the Tug Fork River, immediately opposite the State of Kentucky. This formerly wealthy region is being challenged and things are getting worse. There are about 3000 counties in the United States. Mingo County is the 81st poorest county in the
US and McDowell County is the 6th poorest .
Deep in the heart of coal country, Williamson has a significant physical infrastructure. Unfortunately, most of that physical infrastructure is empty, including the local high school, local elementary school, storefronts, and warehouses. Many of those buildings are boarded up or have broken windows. Fortunately, the region is starting to recover with projects in entrepreneurship and healthcare.
GPSA is proud to be able to contribute to this beautiful town and wonderful community.
