SAN FERNANDO: Breaks Ground on New Public Health Center
After five years of a somewhat nomadic existence following the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the San Fernando Health Center is finally about to get a permanent home. County officials broke ground Friday at the site of the new, 10,000-square-foot center, which will serve low-income adults and children. The Los Angeles Times reports that the center, a collaboration between L.A. County and the city of San Fernando, will encompass 13 examination rooms, a laboratory, radiology services and a small pharmacy. It is expected to open next May (Manzano, 5/15).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
