2006-2010

2006

With the help of a $1 million grant through Mercy Hospital and the Health Resources and Services Administration, construction began on BCCHC's center at 210 S. Second Street in Hamilton.  

In September, BCCHC received official status as a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike.

2007

In January, the Hamilton health center moved to 210 S. Second Street and was renamed the Ernst J. Bever Community Health Center. The move resulted in an expansion from three exam rooms and one provider to 12 exam rooms and four providers.

In September, BCCHC obtained full Federally Qualified Health Center status. With this achievement came additional funding which allowed us to re-open a dental center at our Middletown Community Health Center location.  

2008

A partnership formed with Community First Pharmacy to be our principal pharmacy for 340B services at the Bever center.

In August, Dr. Alvin Jackson, director of the Ohio Department of Health, State Senator Gary Cates, Mayor Larry Mulligan Jr. and other community leaders attended and spoke at the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the dental center at the Middletown Center during National Health Center Week.

In November, Marc Bellisario was selected by the Board of Directors to become the Chief Executive Officer of BCCHC.

2009

BCCHC acquires the former Taft School property from the Middletown City School Board in the City of Middletown.

2010

In 2010, BCCHC's board approves changing the name of the organization to Primary Health Solutions (PHS).

PHS receives an expanded service grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to open a pediatric center on Hamilton's West side.

As part of National Community Health Center Week, PHS breaks ground for the new Middletown health center.  The new center was built with a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.  Out of 1,500 organizations, PHS was one of 88 organizations who received grants for construction of new health centers across the country.
