Lincoln Avenue Medical Center expands

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.--The Lincoln Avenue Medical-Dental Center in Yakima held a dedication ceremony Saturday.

The center's been under construction for over a year.

Clinic Administrator, Sherpri Small, said they have added more rooms for pediatrics, dental, and they have incorporated WIC into the building.

"It's truly a feeling that I can't even find words to explain," said Small. "When you're able to open up the doors and say that we're taking so many more patients, we're able to recruit so many more providers that want to serve the patients."

The center currently serves over 1,500 patients, but the clinic administrator said the expansion will allow them to accommodate even more.

Lincoln Avenue Medical Center focuses on health for women and children.
