Now that the new Legacy - Montrose Clinic is up and running, you’d think it’s time to sit back and enjoy a few moments of peace and quiet, right?
At Legacy we don’t take breaks when it comes to building healthy communities. On Monday, September 26, we moved on to the next big thing!
On that day, we began a new construction project at Legacy - Southwest Clinic, one that will update and expand the facility located at 6441 High Star Drive to better serve our patients. The project’s two phases will take 12-14 weeks total.
All clinical services are now being operated out of what used to be the pediatric side of the building. Social Services, Eligibility, and Education have been moved into one trailer, while the provider’s office, appointment desk, and employee lunch room are in another. Phase II will see this set up flip flop, and clinical services will move to what was once the obstetrics side of the facility.
Legacy staff is working to make sure no services are interrupted, and the plan to accomplish this includes setting aside an area just for walk-ins. Even with the smaller space, Dr. Lia Rodriguez reports that the Legacy - Southwest Clinic saw 33 pediatric walk-in patients on the first Monday morning after construction started.
