New UNHS clinic moving ahead in Blanding...

Officials at Utah Navajo Health System, Inc. are excited about the progress of the new Blanding Health Center clinic on 300 West, in Blanding. Chuck Eubanks, Project Superintendent for Korte Company, contractors for the new clinic, says the project is on target and crews are currently working inside on flooring, laying ceramic tiles and painting. Within the week, Eubanks said, the clinic will have full power. As soon as the weather breaks, crews will resume working on the outside of the clinic. Paving around the  building will begin in April. Between 70 and 80 workers are on the job each day right now. UNHS officials are planning on a grand opening date of July 5. The clinic is expected to open shortly thereafter. Eubanks said he is pleased with the way the 42,000 square-foot clinic project has gone so far.                                                            Staff photo
