TUBA CITY, Ariz. - Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation's (TCRHCC) current construction project with the Modular Medical Office Building (MMOB) located south of the main hospital is expected to delay traffic with possible road closures on East Cedar Avenue, from the west entrance to the east end of the construction site starting June 3.

Presently, the MMOB project is on schedule. The foundation is complete and the contractor, Eastern Style Builders (ESB) will be delivering the first floor of the modular building. The large end of the modular building is 15'x50' long and the mid-section is 11'x39' long.

TCRHCC Security is planning to switch traffic to south Pine Street, which will lead drivers into the Patient/Staff parking lot, located south of the construction site. Patients and visitors can also take Elm Street off of Main Street, bringing drivers around near the Refill Pharmacy building and Family Wellness Center for parking.

TCRHCC Facilities Management and ESB are carefully planning, as construction will affect patient and visitor traffic on campus. The main priority during construction is safety. During this time we ask you to be patient and to be aware of your surroundings near the construction site.

The MMOB is expected to be complete in November. The three-story building will be 33,700-square-feet, located south of the main medical center. The first floor will house an expanded area for our Comprehensive Diabetes Program, Outpatient Pharmacy with a convenient drive-up window, and Patient Registration in the Main Lobby. On the second floor, there will be an expanded space for the current Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Walk In Clinics. The Obstetrical and Gynecological Clinic (Women's Clinic) and Pediatric Clinic will be housed on the third floor.

In the meantime, TCRHCC Facilities Management is available for updates and questions at (928) 283-2873 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
