New clinic construction begins

clinicdirtworkYears of planning by the Mitchell County Hospital board and administrators has come to fruition, as dirt work has begun at the site of the planned new rural health clinic. An official groundbreaking ceremony will be held Thursday, March 26th at 2 p.m., and the public is invited to come out and celebrate with hospital personnel.
According to hospital administrator Robbie Dewberry, the new 11,000 square foot structure will have room to house six or seven healthcare providers. Currently, the Family Medical Associates building only has space for four.
Chapman Harvey Architects of Lubbock, the hospital’s engineering firm, worked with physicians and staff of the existing clinic to come up with a design that is functional. Hospital administrators plan to use the Family Medical Associates building to accommodate visiting specialty clinic providers once the new clinic is open.
The hospital has been fortunate to be awarded a $50,000 grant by the United States Department of Agriculture. The funds will be used to purchase medical equipment for the new facility.
MCHD Community Relations Director Audra Hoback said that contractors expect to complete construction in March 2016.
