The groundbreaking for a new public health clinic in Reedley will have to take a rain check.
The ceremony, which was scheduled for Wednesday, was to commemorate a new United Health Centers (UHC) installment in Reedley. This, however, has been pushed to Feb. 20 following reports of bad weather.
The new, 20,000-square-foot health center will replace UHC’s smaller clinic when completed. Located at 2022 E. Manning Ave., the facility will provide 15 dental working spaces as a new service in addition to expanding to 22 exam rooms for medical, six for optometry, as well as behavioral health services, an in-house pharmacy and chiropractic care. Completion is expected next January.
Meanwhile, Madera will also be seeing its own public health services expand. According to Nichole Mosqueda, director of programs and business development for Camarena Health, the new Camarena Kids Pediatric Health Center will be celebrating its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday.
