Staff Le Cen­tre de Santé Com­mu­nau­taire de l'Estrie is close to com­plet­ing work on its new lo­ca­tion at 5 Main Street S. in Alexan­dria and has set Fri­day, Septem­ber 2 as the date the new lo­ca­tion will be open for busi­ness.

An of­fi­cial grand open­ing cel­e­bra­tion will be held at a later date.

Spokesper­son Au­drey Bour­gon-Touchette con­firmed the cen­tre will be closed Au­gust 30 and 31 and Septem­ber 1 as the move from 280 In­dus­trial Blvd. takes place.

In case of emer­gency, clients are to visit Hôpi­tal Glen­garry Memo­rial Hospi­tal while the fa­cil­ity is closed.

Crews just com­pleted work on the floor­ing at the new premises, the for­mer Shop­pers Drug Mart, and are in­stalling new sig­nage.

“There is still work to do but ev­ery­thing is go­ing well,” said Ms. Bour­gon-Touchette. “We’ll be ready for Septem­ber 2.”

The new lo­ca­tion will fea­ture more ex­am­i­na­tion rooms for physi­cians and nurse prac­ti­tion­ers. To im­prove ac­cess and ef­fi­ciency for both pa­tients and staff ev­ery­thing will be lo­cated on one floor, an im­prove­ment over the two-storey In­dus­trial Boule­vard site.

Start­ing Septem­ber 2, the new site will have the fol­low­ing reg­u­lar busi­ness hours: Mon­days, Tues­days, Thurs­days and Fri­days from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wed­nes­days from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The phone num­ber re­mains 613-525-5544.

AL­MOST THERE: The en­trance to the for­mer Shop­pers Drug Mart store in Alexan­dria is be­ing re­built to make it wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble as ren­o­va­tions near com­ple­tion.
