MCSD opens new clinic in Eastlake

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - A grand opening celebration took place Tuesday for one of Naval Medical Center San Diego's newest clinics in Eastlake.

The 20-person staff opened its clinic doors on March 25, and sees on average about 100 patients a day. It serves a large population of military veterans and their family members that previously had to go to Chula Vista for treatment.

"This is part of our medical homeport model, which is patient-centered care. So we have a team of providers assigned to each patient, but also convenience, bringing the clinic into their neighborhood so they can have a short drive to get their medical care," MCSD public affairs officer Sonja Hanson said.

This is the 12th of 13 clinics to open in the San Diego area. The final one will celebrate its grand opening in Rancho Bernardo next month.
