County breaks ground on new clinic
December 15, 2012, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report
County and health officials broke ground Thursday on a new south county medical and dental clinic that will combine three public health centers under one roof.

The new South County Health Center will replace the existing Fair Oaks Clinic, which is small and outdated, on the same spot at 2710 Middlefield Road in Redwood City. The new clinic is expected to open next year with the goal of increasing efficiency and reducing operating costs.

The Sequoia Healthcare District pledged $4.3 million to the new clinic which will deliver free or low-cost medical and dental care.

"This is a wonderful day for the county and the district,” said Kim Griffin, president of the Sequoia Healthcare District.

The clinic comes after similarly renovated Half Moon Bay center opened on the coastside earlier this year to expand health access to low-income residents and farm workers.

Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
