Elko Community Health Center will open in early 2022 in Elko, Nevada, providing convenient access to high-quality, affordable healthcare in a rural area.
Petros Partners provided $2.9 million of the $32 million in New Markets Tax Credit allocation that funded the project, which is sponsored by Community Health Development Partners.
The nearly 30,000-square-foot campus will include a 17-bed ambulatory surgery center with three operating rooms, along with adjacent medical office and medical imaging facilities.
Elko Community Health Center is expected to serve more than 11,000 patients each year through a wide range of specialty medical practices, including cardiology, general surgery, ophthalmology, and orthopedics. It also will offer free health- and wellness-related programming for residents of the local community.
Built by an Elko-based general contractor, the new health center will revitalize previously empty retail space in a local shopping mall and create 37 new full-time equivalent jobs.
