San Juan Health Services District has been selected to receive $200,000 to construct an expansion to their health clinic in Monticello. The expansion will include 12 patient exam rooms and eight offices for medial personnel.
The structure will be used for visiting heart, surgical, dental, orthopedics, podiatry, and urology physicians. Upon completion, the clinic will be able to provide exceptional health care services.
At the current time, the health clinic in Monticello is housed in crowded space in the San Juan Hospital.
Two additional projects at the hospital received funding, including $198,000 for a Day Care Facility, and $155,000 for an expansion of the hospital lab. Upon completion, the child care facility will provide much needed 24 hour child care for the community, and health care employees who work around the clock.
The current hospital lab is small and does not meet the needs of the community. The expansion will include a private area for patient blood draws, additional space for critical equipment, and office space for staff. The expansion will ensure quality lab services in the community for many years.
The hospital projects will total $3.2 million.
