The Sallisaw Health and Wellness Center Board of Directors held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for the center’s expansion.
The center, on South Kerr Boulevard, is doubling in size to 16,000 square feet. The expansion will include adding more space for the center’s Behavioral Health Department.
Brooke Lattimore, chief operating officer, said a new pharmacy will also be housed in the expanded building.
The Sallisaw Health and Wellness Center serves, on average, 120 patients a day, Lattimore said. Most of the patients have no or little insurance or are on Medicaid, she said.
