August 20, 1970

The Clover Fork Clinic becomes the first clinic funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). The Clinic operates out of a renovated trailer.

The original staff includes a project director, a full-time family practitioner,  a part-time internist, two nurse practitioners, an administrator and assistant administrator, business office personnel, nurse aides, a laboratory and x-ray technician, and a housekeeper. A dentist is added during that first year. A Board of Directors, made up of local citizens, is created to govern the Clinic.

 

June 1975

ARC funding ends and the Clinic becomes self-supporting. By this time Britt Lewis, Jr. is the Clinic administrator and Dr. J.D. Miller is the project director.

 

1977

A new 9,000 square foot Clinic facility is completed to meet the needs of an ever-increasing patient population. This year is a financially difficult one. The Clinic obtains federal assistance for a brief period and also uses this aid to add a pharmacy.

 

1979

The Clinic once again becomes self-supporting.

 

1980

Additional programs are added, such as black lung education, family planning, and health education.

 

2004

A new satellite Clinic, called Clover Fork Clinic of Harlan, is opened on Central Street in Harlan. It begins with Monday operation only, but soon becomes a five-day Clinic, where several providers from the Evarts Clinic serve as health care providers on a rotating basis.
