UNHS announces groundbreaking for Blanding clinic...Montezuma Creek Clinic is not a hospital

UNHS Blanding Clinic Ground Breaking-- March 29

It is official. Utah Navajo Health System, Inc. announced last week plans to begin construction of the new Blanding Clinic in April with a groundbreaking ceremony on March 29. The groundbreaking will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the site of the new clinic; across the street from Blue Mountain Hospital on 300 West. Following the official ceremony, lunch will be served for the community, under a large tent. Construction will begin in April with Korte Company as the contractor that will supervise construction of the 42,000 square-foot facility. The new clinic will feature additional exam rooms, with dental, vision and other specialty services. It will also have a drive-thru pharmacy, Behavioral Health and X-Ray services, and a large conference room that can also be used as a community meeting space. “UNHS is proud to announce the construction of this new medical facility that will improve health care in the community for years to come,” said UNHS Chief Operating Officer Byron Clarke. The community is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony, join us for lunch and learn more about the new clinic.
