A groundbreaking ceremony Friday was another step toward a planned outpatient clinic and community living center in French Camp to serve veterans throughout the region.

The 158,000-square-foot clinic will be part of the VA Palo Alto Health Care System and will stand north of San Joaquin General Hospital on 52 acres west of Interstate 5 in French Camp.

An 80-bed home for veterans, based on the Green House Project model, will eventually be part of the project.

A $143,594,000 construction contract was awarded this summer, and the clinic is expected to be finished in 2022.
