I took this photograph at a meeting of the board of directors for the Corning Healthcare District last evening. The board broke ground last week for the Meuser Memorial Health Center, to be built near the southeast corner of Marguerite Avenue and Solano Street. The site is the same location where Corning Memorial Hospital once stood. It is named after one of Corning's former doctors, Dr. Arthur Meuser. County Social Services, County Health Services, County Mental Health Services, and Quest Diagnostics will be housed in the new facility. The 10,000+-square-foot center will also be used for staff training and free health information classes for the public. The facility is scheduled to open in June, 2010. Click to enlarge.
