One of the primary goals of the Affordable Care Act is to provide health care to those individuals that do not currently have health insurance. Individuals that earn less than 133% of the poverty line will have insurance paid in full. Those that are above this line will have to pay for a portion of the insurance either through the person’s employer or directly from state or federal government funding. For all the current people coming onto the insurance roles, one concern is where will these thousands of presently uninsured people living in the rural areas of Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana go for medical care? One answer is the number of privately funded medical clinic organizations that are currently expanding their facilities into rural areas. Their medical facility approach focuses on the use of commercial modular construction to meet their needs. By using modular medical construction, facilities can be purchased or leased at a much lower cost, and can be up and running much faster than site construction. This makes using modular buildings the perfect approach for developing rural medical clinics.
Ramtech Building Systems has for over 30 years provided the medical community throughout the Southwest with sophisticated temporary and permanent medical clinics in both rural and urban areas. Privately funded medical clinic groups especially like working with Ramtech since we can provide a custom floor-plan design, exterior rendering, and a detailed project budget as part of our no cost project planning service. Our approach consistently results in meeting the quality and service expectations of our medical customers.
