SLIDESHOW: Celebrating Bluffton-Jasper Volunteers in Medicine open house

Bluffton-Jasper Volunteers in Medicine held an open house Thursday hosted by the Jasper Chamber of Commerce. About 100 people attended the event on Jacob Smart Boulevard in Ridgeland. Refreshments were sponsored by the Jasper Rotary Club and Jasper Boys & Girls Club.

The facility will provide primary care services. About one-third of the patients who visit the Bluffton-Jasper Volunteers in Medicine clinic in Bluffton off Burnt Church Road are Jasper County residents, calling for a facility closer to home for their patients. 
The Ridgeland clinic was completely remodeled by the nonprofit organization. It now has four exam rooms with one dedicated for eye exams.
