Site Work Begins for Johnson City Senior Health Clinic Project
Construction crews are busy at the site of a long-awaited senior health clinic that will be operated as part of Binghamton University's Health Sciences Campus.
Plans for the facility at Jennison and Corliss avenues were announced three years ago. The project is being developed in conjunction with Lourdes Hospital.
An old house and a former medical complex were demolished nearly three years ago to make way for the clinic. The property is located just northeast of the renovated Endicott Johnson building that now houses the Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
Security fencing was installed at the future site of the Ford Family Wellness Center for Seniors a few weeks ago.
Workers for Upstate Companies of Oneonta now conducting excavation operations at a neighboring property on Ozalid Road where a clinic parking lot will be located. Paving for the lot is expected to occur soon.
The clinic itself will be housed in an engineered building with specially-designed components.
Supervised nursing school students are expected to assist at the clinic.
According to the Decker College of Nursing website, the clinic project now is expected to be complete by late this year or early next year.
