Community Care teases ‘significant investment’ in downtown Buckhannon

BUCKHANNON – Community Care of West Virginia has hung its banner on the old Citizens Bank of West Virginia building, located beside Walgreens on West Main Street, one of two major purchases the healthcare provider has made in downtown Buckhannon recently.

When contacted for information about the $2.6 million purchase, Community Care referred My Buckhannon to Amber Vineyard with Orion Strategies, who provided a short statement on behalf of the healthcare provider.

“Community Care of West Virginia purchased the former Citizens Bank of West Virginia building in December 2021,” Vineyard wrote. “We are planning a significant investment in this building in order to provide superior care for our patients and expand services to the Upshur County community. We will continue to keep our patients and community apprised as the next steps take place.”

Citizens Bank initially constructed the building on the former Bill Kelley Chevrolet property in 2018. However, when the bank acquired Community Bank, the combined branch moved into the Community Bank property across the street, in the former fire station.

Community Care has also purchased the Buckhannon Moose Lodge on North Kanawha Street, according to the deed filed in the Upshur County Clerk’s office.

No details were released about how the buildings will be utilized by Community Care. Currently, Upshur County has a Community Care health center at 33-37 West Main Street, as well as a Community Care pharmacy in the same building, a Community Care walk-in clinic at Northridge Plaza, a Community Care Connections on N. Kanawha Street and a Community Care health center and pharmacy in Rock Cave.
