The facility is set to open late in the year and will offer standard outpatient care to community residents. Bowser said she is excited to welcome a new healthcare system east of the river that “attacks health disparities and makes us more resilient for challenges that lie ahead.”

Additionally, a second urgent care center, slated to open in late 2022, will be located in Ward 7.
