New expanded Monterey County Health Department Clinic to open
Seaside Family Health Center opens Monday, July 3rd.
The Monterey County Health Department’s Clinic Services Bureau Seaside Family Health Center officially opens its new building on Monday, July 3rd at 1156 Fremont Boulevard in Seaside. The new clinic is located behind the current clinic at 1150 Fremont Boulevard.
During demolition of the current building a temporary entrance and parking lot will be accessed on Hilby Avenue. Signs will be posted to help patients locate the temporary entrance.
The new Health Center is 70% larger than the current clinic and boasts 32 exam rooms, 5 rooms for patient education and group activities, a dental suite, a spacious waiting area and a child play area.
“We are very excited about the opening of the new Seaside Family Health Center,” said Julie Edgcomb, Administrator of Ambulatory Services, Natividad Medical Center & Monterey County Health Department. “It will allow us to provide increased access to greatly needed care to residents of Monterey County, regardless of their ability to pay.”
A grand opening celebration is expected to be held this fall after the demolition of the old building and construction of new parking lot.
The new Health Center has been made possible by a unique partnership between Monterey County, and Montage Health, the parent company of Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. Montage Health bought the land for the new clinic and is paying for construction and will lease the building back to the County. “We are extremely grateful to Montage Health for their support and their strong commitment to serve the residents of Monterey County,” said Julie Edgcomb.
