FARMINGTON—University of Utah Health Care officials broke ground in Farmington on Wednesday morning for a new community clinic. When completed in 2016, the Farmington Health Center will include clinics, same-day surgeries and a pharmacy.

The clinic will be built just to the west of the Station Park shopping complex.

With music from the Davis High School Jazz Band during the ceremony, spokespersons from University Health Care, the University Hospital and Clinics, and local dignitaries praised the coming of the new clinic to Farmington. Nancy Haacke, a current patient of the health care system, said she was grateful “that I won’t have to drive from Layton up to the U. anymore, and take half a day off work to do it.”

Following the ceremonial turning of dirt with gold shovels, actual work began when a track hoe was used to demolish a small barn on the property. Construction is expected to be complete in 2016, though an exact opening date has yet to be determined.
