Construction is well on its way at the new location of the Chatham-Kent Community Health Centre in Wallaceburg.
Officials with the health centre say the new location should be open to the public before the end of July.
Tracy Lily, the office manager of the Wallaceburg office for the Chatham-Kent Community Health Centres, says they are really looking forward to moving in.
“It’s close to completion, we’re very pleased with how quickly the contractors have moved,” said Lily, “We plan on moving in between July 13th and the 17th and then opening up on July 18th.”
Lily says they are also looking to expand their access and they are hoping to provide a number of the chronic disease programs to the community.
But the speedy move isn’t the only thing people are talking about.
“The community is quite impressed with the look of the building,” said Lily, “It’s quite an improvement from the old Giant Tiger eye-sore.”
