Groundbreaking at Elgin Health District Rural Health Clinic

What started out as just a ‘shot in the dark’ dream, is one step closer to reality as the Elgin Health District Rural Health Clinic holds a ground breaking ceremony before the actual construction begins on the $2.25 million building.
 
With $257,120 already in the bank the Elgin Health District capital campaign committee is expecting another $600,000 from other grants, fund-raisers, and foundations in the near future.
 
Construction is set to begin immediately. The clinic will be located across from the Elgin Stampede Grounds between WC Construction and the temporary Elgin Health District Rural Health Clinic.
