A new health clinic is under construction in Harrah.
SSM Health is constructing a facility on NE 23rd Street just west of the newly built Kickapoo Turnpike and NE 23rd Street.
A groundbreaking ceremony was hosted last week.
The health medical group purchased the 87,120-square foot piece of land in the fall of 2020 for $313,000.
The facility’s proximity to the new turnpike is surely not a coincidence as city leaders work to manage the potential growth Harrah could be seeing in coming years.
Located at 18961 NE 23rd St., the new health center will be located northwest of the intersection of Luther Road and NE 23rd Street.
The SSM team includes more than 40,000 employees and 10,000 providers across four states.
