CHAFFEE CROSSING (KFSM) - It's a historical day at Chaffee Crossing as crews break ground on a new medical clinic.
The family practice clinic will be located at 17200 Roberts Blvd.
Families that live in Greenwood, Lavaca, Barling and Chaffee Crossing will have this clinic closer to them instead of having to drive all the way into Fort Smith.
The $770,000 facility will offer a full range of primary services including an on-site laboratory, X-ray and ultrasound.
Doctors said this clinic is all about the patients, so they are making it family friendly by offering flexible scheduling and allowing walk-ins. Each patient will be able to have their choice of two board certified family physicians and a nurse practitioner.
With this clinic being built, leaders in Chaffee Crossing said this is just the beginning of some great things that are coming to the area.
The Chaffee Crossing Clinic will start seeing patients by spring of 2016.
