A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held to mark the opening of the Fort Yuma Health Care Center, located on the Quechan Nation, in Winterhaven, Calif.

The Indian Health Service and the Cocopah and Quechan Tribes celebrated the completion of the 76,000-square-foot outpatient facility which will serves the two tribes located along the Colorado River in Arizona and California.

The healthcare center will provide primary care, dental and eye care, diagnostic imaging and laboratory, pharmacy, behavioral health, community outreach, diabetes treatment, and wellness services.

The two-year project was designed by Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and built by Pilkington Commercial Co. Inc.
