RICHARDTON, N.D. (AP) - The Richardton Health Center in southwestern North Dakota is breaking ground on a new nursing home and clinic.

The new center will include a 19,000-square-foot, 24-bed skilled nursing home and a 3,000-square-foot clinic with three exam rooms and one procedure room.

All rooms in the nursing home will be private with larger common areas. There will be a central location for services between the nursing home and clinic.

USDA Rural Development provided a $5.5 million loan to help with the project, which is estimated to cost $6.2 million.

The groundbreaking ceremony is set for Monday morning.
