Work Begins on $13M Project To Expand W. Berkeley Clinic
Last week, officials at the LifeLong Medical Care clinic in West Berkeley held a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the beginning of construction on a $13 million, three-story expansion. The upgraded facility will add 13 new exam rooms and allow the clinic to serve nearly 10,000 patients annually, up from about 6,000 patients. Officials said about $2 million of the cost of the 18-month project will be covered by donations and the rest by loans. Clinic Director Yolie Gamble said the new facility will allow the clinic to adopt an integrated primary care system that treats patients in a more holistic way.
