Southeast Kentucky Chamber Holds Ribbon Cutting For Mountain Comprehensive Health Corp. in Knott Co.

PIKEVILLE, KY (April 24, 2024)—The Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce facilitated a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 for Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation’s (MCHC) new Knott County Dental Clinic and Knott County Pharmacy, at 1970 Highway 160 S in Hindman, KY. The celebration featured free food and prizes for those who attended.

At 1 p.m. MCHC CEO, Mike Caudill, made a few remarks and introduced the clinic’s dentist, Justin Cornett, DMD, and the lead Pharmacist, Joe Higdon, Pharm. D. up to the podium, along with Chamber President & CEO, Jordan Gibson, to officially cut the ribbon.

MCHC’s Knott County Dental Clinic offers a range of services such as preventative care, restorative work, dentures, and extractions. The Dental Clinic is available to serve residents of Knott County and surrounding counties and accepts both private insurance and Medicaid. Dr. Cornett is a resident of Knott County and a recent University of Louisville graduate who has been practicing dentistry for about a year.

The Knott County Pharmacy boasts a machine that can prepackage prescriptions in unit doses, labeled with the day and time they are supposed to be taken, which can help patients such as stroke victims keep track of multiple medications. Dr. Higdon and the pharmacy staff can serve anyone—they are not limited to just MCHC doctors.

“We’re tickled to be able to provide these services for Knott County residents and beyond,” said MCHC CEO, Mike Caudill. “As former residents, we’re very glad to be back.  This is just the beginning for all we intend to do for Knott County to prosper.”

“We’re happy to celebrate MCHC’s growth in Knott County,” said Chamber President & CEO, Jordan Gibson. “The Dental Clinic and Pharmacy will make a huge impact in this region, and we’re excited to support the success of MCHC’s mission in keeping Eastern Kentucky residents healthy.”
