Breaking ground

HARLINGEN – A new $1.8 million medical treatment clinic should break ground within the next two weeks, and eventually will double the number of staff it employs at its present location.

Valley Day and Night Clinic, with its headquarters in Brownsville, will move from its current location at 1214 Dixieland Road to the new facility at 1610 South F Street late this year or early 2017.

Valley Day and Night has two medical clinics in Brownsville, one in Mission and one in Laredo, in addition to its Harlingen location.

The facilities provide treatment for minor emergencies, school and sports physicals, EKGs, vaccinations, X-rays and therapy. They have their own in-house labs.

The new clinic is the latest evidence of Harlingen’s rapidly-expanding role as a health-care destination in the Rio Grande Valley.
