VISTA — Vista Community Clinic, or VCC, celebrated the grand opening of a new 12,000-square-foot primary care clinic on Aug. 27. The new clinic is located at 134 Grapevine Road, near the border of Vista and Oceanside. This new facility will reportedly be a health care safety net for over 16,000 local residents and will help meet the increasing demand for affordable health care.
“The economic crisis has exacerbated the already tremendous need for affordable health care,” said Dr. Kelly Motadel, medical director for VCC.
“We are proud to be able to serve even more community members during this difficult time.”
As of mid-July, $4,291,288 has been pledged towards the construction of this facility, which was designed by architect Linas Naujokaitis and constructed by Erickson-Hall Construction. It will accommodate six full time physicians and nurse practitioners, expanding pediatrics, family medicine and obstetrics services. The location and building design will increase patient access to laboratory, pharmacy and health education programs.
