Construction beginning on new home for Central Lambton Family Health Team

From  The Observer

A sod-turning ceremony is taking place 10 a.m. March 25 at the site for the new $4-million, 19,500-square-foot structure at Englehart Park in Petrolia. The site was chosen to give patients easy access to Bluewater Health’s Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital.

The single-storey building will house the health team — including seven doctors — a pharmacy, a dentist’s office, and other yet-to-be-confirmed health services.

“We have been looking forward to this day for some time,” said Petrolia Mayor John McCharles in a news release. “This will tie our communities together and secure the future of Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital.”

The centre is expected to serve about 10,500 patients and is scheduled to open in the fall.
