KAPAA — The Kauai Medical Clinic in Kapaa got a lot bigger to be able to provide more primary care opportunities for residents in the Eastside, Monday.
Scheduled to open its doors to the public by the fall of 2019, ground was broken and blessed for the new facility located in the clock tower at the Kauai Village Shopping Center, where representatives of Shioi Construction, the project’s general contractor, were already engrossed with meetings to get the project moving.
“This is 8,000 square feet that is designed to grow with the community needs,” said Jen Chahanovich, the Wilcox Health CEO and president. “We’re here for the community.”
Faith Campbell, the Wilcox Health marketing manger, said the new facility is about four times bigger than the current facility located in the Kapaa Shopping Center.
Once completed, the clinic at the Kauai Village Shopping Center will have space to accommodate 16 examination rooms, two procedure rooms, a larger waiting room area, and space to provide additional support for Kauai Medical Clinic physicians.
