Patients in Botetourt County will soon have another healthcare option.
Tuesday afternoon, Lewis-Gale broke ground on a new practice in Daleville.
Right now, the Daleville Town Center is mostly open fields, but developers hope this facility will be up and operational as a community grows up around it.
"We will have a diagnostic imaging center which will on focus on CT scans, plain film X-Ray, ultrasound. We'll also have a physicans practice component which will focus on specialists who will be here seeing patients on a regular basis," says HCA SWVA President Victor Giovanetti.
A severe winter kept developers from breaking ground for several months.
The facility is about 20-thousand square feet.
The Lewis-Gale Imaging Center and physician practice is scheduled to be open next year.
