Banner to open new health center in Fernley
FERNLEY, NV (March 27, 2014) – Banner Health will break ground in late April on construction of a new health center at 1260 Nevada Pacific Blvd. in Fernley that when opened will offer a number of medical services including family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics, as well as basic lab work and x-rays.
The new 13,670-square-foot structure will be built on a 10.3-acre green field site. When completed in late 2014, the new Banner Health Center will have finished space for six health providers and unfinished “shelled” space to accommodate three additional providers in the future. This Banner Health Center is designed to be expanded as need arises.
Interior design will include a patient waiting area, blood draw station, X-ray room, exam and procedure rooms, a medical assistant station, and provider and support services offices. The building’s exterior will include convenient parking area for patients and staff.
Clark & Sullivan Construction has been selected as general contractor for the project, with the final cost estimated to be $9.8 million. The general contractor plans to utilize as much local labor and materials as possible.
“We are pleased to be building this new center in a growing community,” said Francisco Gonzalez, executive director for Banner Medical Group physician practices in rural communities. “Residents of Fernley, Fallon and surrounding communities will have convenient access to additional premier health services provided by Banner Health. Our commitment is providing exceptional care and service, and we’re glad to be able to respond to this community need.”
“We’re excited to partner with Banner Medical Group on this new health center,” added John D’Angelo, chief executive officer for Banner Churchill Community Hospital in Fallon. “It will give us the opportunity to support the much needed expansion of primary care and speciality services in Lyon County and surrounding areas,” he said.
Projected opening for the new center is January 2015.
