St. Vincent Healthcare is proposing to open a clinic in Lockwood on the Lockwood School compound. They hope to be able to open at the same time as Lockwood’s new high school is opened, which would be the fall of 2020.
St. Vincent’s is considering building a $9 million, 12,000 square foot facility, on the Lockwood School compound that would provide walk-in services, multiple primary care physicians, and a pharmacy including drive-thru, according to Lockwood School Superintendent Tobin Novasio in reporting to school trustees.
Novasio said that discussion is on-going and that St. Vincent’s Healthcare’s “commitment to Lockwood has been refreshing.”
Novasio said that preliminarily the school is considering leasing the land to a developer who would build to-suit for St. Vincent’s Healthcare, which would then lease the facility from the developer. Under state law the school is permitted to lease property.
Novasio said that they have met with Matt Robertson of NAI Business Properties and have asked him to develop a Request For Qualifications for interested developers.
St. Vincent’s has been operating a mobile facility on the Lockwood school grounds to provide services to school children as well as the community as a whole.
