EPA Grant Assists Health Center Opening

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA—Community leaders Thursday will formally open a new $5.6 million health clinic here on the site of a former railroad and residential area, due in part of an Environmental Protection Agency grant to clean up the property.

Located at 900 South Sixth Street, the construction site was assessed for potential hazardous substance and petroleum contamination. The EPA Brownfields funding helped remove environmental barriers on the property, allowing construction to proceed, according to an agency statement.

The All Care Health Center (formerly the Council Bluffs Community Health Center) will have a new 18,015-square-foot facility that includes medical and dental exam rooms, a pharmacy, surface parking, and space for additional behavioral health providers. The All Care Health Center expects to serve nearly 8,000 patients.
