Clinica Family Health is receiving a $3.4 million investment from U.S. Bank to help build a 65,000-square-foot health clinic that will expand care to more residents.
The new building at 1735 S. Public Rd. will serve 4,000 more patients a year and offer a full spectrum of medical services, dental care, mental health counseling and the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program.
"We very much value the opportunity to be a trusted partner on this expansion by Clinica Family Health because of its dedication to improving the health of disadvantaged residents of Lafayette and the greater Boulder area. The new clinic will better enable patients to improve and protect their health, which helps the entire community become stronger," said Maria Bustria-Glickman, vice president of U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation, a subsidiary of U.S. Bank.
USBCDC is investing $3.4 million in federal New Markets tax credit equity in the $26 million project. The new clinic will care for an estimated 11,000 patients and provide more than 54,000 health visits a year.
"Our existing facility was too small to handle the number of patients we had and lacked the space we need to add additional services," said Clinica Family Health President and CEO Simon Smith. "This new clinic will help us fill the tremendous need our patients have for dental care. Additionally, having a pharmacy and Boulder County Public Health onsite will allow us to better serve our patients."
Construction has already started and is expected to finish in June. The new health center will create 30 new jobs and 250 construction jobs.
