SANTA FE -- Christus St. Vincent will break ground Thursday on the Entrada Contenta Health Center, a facility on the Southside that will provide primary care, urgent care, diabetes care and lab and radiology services for the community.

Construction on the 15,234 square-foot facility begins on Thursday with the turning of the dirt by doctors, hospital administrators and members of the community.

"We are looking forward to providing much needed services to the growing Southside,” said Bruce Tassin, President and CEO of Christus St. Vincent.

Mayor Javier Gonzales is also expected to attend the groundbreaking, as well as doctors who will staff the new health care center.
