New Health Center Focuses on Prevention
Oklahoma City’s most unhealthy zip code is getting a new regional health and wellness campaign which broke ground on Monday.
The Oklahoma City/County Health Department breaks ground on the Northeast Regional Health and Wellness Campus near 63rd and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Director Gary Cox says the 35,000 to 40,000 square foot facility will focus on wellness and prevention.
“A conference center, an auditorium, a training center, it will be the headquarters for our public health emergency operations. It’ll also have a number of wellness activities.”
He says the $8 million to build the facility on the 54 acres of land is coming from city/county health department funds.
It’s expected to be complete in fall of next year.
