Construction on the new building has begun. The cost is estimated at eight million dollars.  The clinic is scheduled to open in early 2014.

Growing population numbers call for more services in healthcare for residents in Mandan and surrounding communities. The new clinic will feature six full-time providers, 18 exam rooms, a full laboratory, radiology services and a pharmacy with a drive-through window.
