(This amendment provides grants from the general fund to Piedmont Access to Health Services, Inc., (PATHS) to hire a family nurse practitioner to augment the services of the organization's three full-time physicians and full-time physician's assistant. The organization's existing health care staff currently serve two centers -- one serving Danville-Pittsylvania County, and the other serving Martinsville-Henry County. The organization projects a need for the family nurse practitioner due to the pending closure of several companies and the sale of the regional hospital to a for-profit healthcare firm.)
