Samaritan Health Services will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, Aug. 29, at 10 a.m. to celebrate the start of construction on a 17,000-square-footbuilding that will house Samaritan’s new Sweet Home Family Medicine Clinic, as well as a new urgent care and pharmacy.
The building is slated to be completed by fall 2023 and will include 18 family medicine exam rooms, seven urgent care exam rooms, a laboratory, a drive-through pharmacy and helipad.
The project is designed to help increase access to health care, close to where people live.
The ceremony will take place at 1289 49th Ave. and is open to the public. The ceremony will kick off with remarks from leadership representing Samaritan Health Services and the City of Sweet Home. A reception with refreshments will follow.
