Unemployment hasn’t improved very much in the Central Valley but there is still light at the end of the tunnel. Adventist Health is in the works of developing a $4.5 million urgent care and radiology center. The sprawling 7,200 square-foot facility will provide full-time imaging, radiology, laboratory, JobCare and extended-hour urgent care to residents. Located in Dinuba, the facility is expected to break ground in May and be completed by the New Year. G.L. Bruno and Associates, a Fresno-based builder and developer, will build the facility. Not only will the facility benefit residents with healthcare needs but many who are still looking for employment.
On a related note, Tulare hospital is introducing a feasibility study in Earlimart to possibly establish a health clinic for residents.
