Multi-Care clinic to open in Lancaster
Project scheduled for completion in 2014
LANCASTER, Calif.—The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services plans to build a new multi-service ambulatory care center at Third Street East and Avenue I, according to Scott Mackey, project manager of the architecture firm designing the clinic.
The $120 million project, scheduled for completion in 2014, will be funded by Build America Bonds through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. The center will provide a state-of the-art health care facility for residents of Antelope Valley.
“This will significantly affect our mortality rates,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “It will save hundreds of thousand of lives.”
The environmental impact report is due for completion by next year and the county plans to break ground in the winter of 2011.
The clinic will open at 8 a.m. and the urgent care will remain open until midnight.
