SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Healthcare advocates and local leaders broke ground on a new health clinic in Sacramento on Tuesday.

The El Camino Medical Center will be the Health and Life Organization’s first clinic to be built from the ground up, providing a medically underserved community and alternative to expensive emergency room visits.

“This is what’s important for here, access for health care so people don’t feel compelled to go to emergency care, because that’s the most expensive care you can get,” said Rep. Doris Matsui.

When the clinic is finished, it will serve a population of more than 35,000 people. It will be located at 965 El Camino Ave.
