Fairview Health Services has has broken ground on a new 18,000-square-foot clinic in northeast suburban Chisago City, replacing its 42-year-old facility there.
Project architects bdh+young posted the news on Twitter Monday, saying they were "proud" to be part of the team building the new facility, which will also offer a Fairview Health Services Pharmacy, primary care, podiatry, physical therapy and a Total Eye Care Clinic.
A groundbreaking ceremony last week was attended by Chisago City Mayor Bob Gustafson, retired physicians Gordon Hovde M.D. and Carlton Erickson M.D., as well as other local dignitaries.
The new clinic will be located in an area that is currently used as the parking lot for the existing facility, with the medical clinic, eye clinic, physical therapy and x-ray services going into the new building, according to Chisago City officials.
The new pharmacy will offer drive-thru service.
The clinic is one of five operated by Fairview Lakes Regional Health Care, a division of Fairview Health Services.
