The Trinity Mother Frances Health System says it will open a new health center in Canton. It will be built at the intersection of I-20 and FM 859 in Canton. The current clinic, located on Highway 243, will close and move to the new center when its finished. Today, Trinity Mother Francis held a ground breaking ceremony for the new center. It says its current center, Trinity Clinic-Canton is too small. The new health center will offer extended hours and extensive laboratory and x-ray equipment.
"It is a big investment," said Lindsey Bradley, President of Trinity Mother Francis Health System. "We have ten acres here. We're having a 20,000 square foot facility and about a $6 million expenditure. It's going to have physician services, diagnosis services, rehabilitation and fitness, so it's a full service facility." The new health center is expected to be finished in 12 to 16 months.
