St. Peter's Health investing $10 million in new Townsend clinic

St. Peter’s Health is investing $10 million in its new Townsend Clinic and plans to break ground in the spring of 2020.

Earlier this year, St. Peter’s purchased a 3.29 acre parcel of land on Highway 287 between the Family Dollar and the Townsend Post Office.

It plans to open a 3,000-square-foot temporary clinic on the site before the permanent facility is built.

“It’s closer to home for those patients” in Broadwater County, said Kendra Lenhardt, director of clinic operations at St. Peter’s Health

The temporary clinic will offer scheduled and walk-in appointments with a primary care provider.

“The intent in the permanent structure is to have a primary care clinic, urgent care and specialists rotate through Townsend,” Lenhardt said, adding that X-rays, ultrasound and a comprehensive lab would also be located in the health center.
