Cass Family Clinic breaking ground this springPublished 3:42pm Monday, February 25, 2013
CASSOPOLIS — Cassopolis Family Clinic breaks ground this spring on an almost 30,000-square foot, $6.4-million new home at 261 M-62 on five acres at the southeast corner near Don Horne Park.
“I’m so excited,” Executive Director Mary Geegan Middleton said Friday of a facility which will offer a drive-through pharmacy, a community room, some dental chairs, behavioral health services and create an undetermined amount of jobs compared to the current location, 109 School St.
Initially, a 24,000-square-foot facility costing $5.7 million was proposed to be erected on the current site, but nothing seemed to fit and putting traffic volume by another park where children play on the playground didn’t seem desirable, said Middleton, a Dowagiac graduate.
Middleton said the project combines $4.4 million in federal HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration) funding, a $1.2 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development and an upcoming local building campaign for the rest.
