A group of Fairview employees sunk an assortment of gold-painted shovels into the ground near the intersection of Highway 95 and Falcon Avenue in North Branch on Monday to mark the official groundbreaking of the new Fairview North Branch Clinic.
Steven Housh, president of Fairview Lakes Medical Center, commended all of those involved with making construction of the clinic a reality, especially North Branch city staff.
“We’re really excited to see this investment come to reality,” he said. “We’re positioned in a location that will help us serve the community effectively.”
Housh noted planning for the project started about 15 years ago, and the target date for the clinic to be finished is May 1, 2013.
