Camarena Health hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for their new Wellness Center at Tesoro Viejo Town Center.
Camarena Health held a groundbreaking event for its new state-of-the-art Wellness Center at the Tesoro Viejo Town Center located next to the Hub.
Camarena Health and Tesoro Viejo expects the project to open in 2022. Madera County Supervisor Brett Frazier highlighted how this center will create access to health and wellness services for residents in his district.
“It is a real privilege for Camarena Health to be collaborating with Tesoro Viejo on this very innovative project,” said Camarena Health CEO Paulo Soares. “We look forward to helping this community thrive through meeting the health and wellness needs of its residents and their families. I believe this Health and Wellness Center will have a lasting impact on the overall health of this community for many years to come.”
The Camarena Health Wellness Center is a 13,000 square feet, two-story facility that will offer medical, dental, health education, and other services for patients and the community at large. In addition to health services, there will be a gym and flexible spaces for other activities such as group workouts and classes.
The Wellness Center anticipates the addition of new employees, including a medical provider, dentist, behavioral health clinician, clinical support staff, and health educators.
Camarena Health’s health educators will provide customized wellness plans focused on improved health and nutrition, as well as one-on-one counseling sessions, group sessions, and community workshops. The Wellness Center will also extend Camarena Health’s reach to many residents in the surrounding Madera County area.
“We are proud to collaborate with a health industry leader like Camarena Health as they understand the importance of preventative healthcare and health education,” said Brent McCaffrey, president of Tesoro Viejo. “This facility is the perfect addition to Tesoro Viejo because it supports health and wellness — a cornerstone of the Tesoro Viejo community.”
