Rural Healthcare Solution

PANHANDLE, TEXAS - An unusual solution to one of the area's largest problems seems to be working.

Most communities solve the rural healthcare shortage by focusing on grants to repay doctor's loans after they move to the area. But back in the fall, Panhandle built a new clinic as a business opportunity, providing economic development money.

Now about 20 to 35 patients pour in every day.While health care here is helpful, it's also a booming business in a niche market - with new clients booking appointments all the time. And they say if profit's possible in Panhandle, this should definitely work elsewhere.
