Pittsburg and state officials are celebrating the planned $5.3 million expansion of a community health center.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Sunday for the expansion at the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, which has seen its patient load double in the first four years of operation.

The Joplin Globe reports a grant through the new federal health care law will provide most of the funds for the project.

The project will nearly triple the number of critical care exam areas at the clinic. Currently, doctors are using closets and restrooms to treat patients and as office space.

The clinic is one of five in Kansas receiving federal funding to expand. Clinics in Junction City, Hutchinson, Salina and Wichita also will receive federal funds.
