(WDAY TV) - The developers are calling it the most spectacular and attractive medical clinic not just in our area, but in many states. Thanks to a 6.6 million dollar federal grant, the Family Healthcare Clinic is consolidating and moving into a new renovated home here at the former Ritchman's building in downtown Fargo.

The clinic helps more than 12-thousand low-income and culturally diverse patients with medical and dental care. With the grant, they can double the number of exam rooms, serve thousands more patients, and add 18 new full-time staff.

“We have the patients, we have the need is there, but we didn't have a building so this has been a dream for us so at the same time we can provide more services to our patients.”

They're hoping to start the 10 million dollar construction project this spring, and have it complete by July of 20-11.
