A Woodlawn-based nonprofit has purchased property along a busy Birmingham corridor.
Christ Health Center purchased property at 750 Montclair Road for $950,000 from the Baptist Health System on Dec. 29, according to public records.
The property is located near the former Trinity Medical Center, a storage facility and the Levite Jewish Community Center.
Leaders with Christ Health Center did not immediately return BBJ requests for comment on the purchase, including what the building would be used for. However, the nonprofit’s annual report indicates it does have goals for clinic expansions.
As of December 2019, the nonprofit that provides health care to the indigent community still needed $1.89 million for an expansion campaign. It had $6.34 million already secured with an overall goal of $8.23 million.
“We are expanding access to affordable, Christ-centered mental health care for adults and kids … even if they are unable to pay,” CHC’s annual report said. “We are committing to train 80 family physicians … to provide 240,000 medical ministry opportunities over the next 10 years.”
Christ Health Center also has been pivotal during the Covid-19 pandemic, offering testing sites throughout Birmingham.
