A new medical clinic will celebrate its opening in the South Bay Tuesday, making health care easier and more convenient for active duty and U.S. Navy veterans.
Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC) Eastlake officially opens on Boswell Road although the staff has been seeing patients for about a month.
The clinic was designed to be one-stop shopping for those seeking healthcare.
Patients will have access to primary care, but there's a pharmacy and a lab at the facility.
Employees were able to give input on how they wanted the facility to be set up.
The center is open, so doctors and patients can have more interaction.
Inside, doctors work in teams which allows for more efficient communication between specialists.
The design was intended to help offer shorter wait times for thousands of veterans who will use the center in the Chula Vista area.
