TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN9) — A traditionally underserved area of Tucson now has easier access to healthcare. El Rio health opened their new clinic on Grant near Alvernon Wednesday.

The 36,000 square foot facility on Grant is expected to serve 3,000 to 4,000 patients.

El Rio Health serves people with and without insurance.

“We see anyone who puts a foot in the door,” said CEO Nancy Johnson.

Johnson says the new health center will provide much needed primary care and behavioral services. A 2018 assessment showed the area as high need.
