The sound of jackhammers rang through downtown Riverbank recently as work resumed on a new health clinic being built in the former Sorenson’s True Value building on Santa Fe Street.

According to William Wareham, president of M&W Construction, Inc., cuts are being made in the concrete foundation of the storefront to accommodate the addition of plumbing to supply the several sinks that will be needed in the treatment booths being built inside.

The remodel is expected to be completed in the spring.

The clinic is being built by Horison’s Unlimited Health Care, also of Merced. It will be the company’s fifth location in the Central Valley.

Located on the south side, at 3234 Santa Fe, clinic will sit between City Hall South, a former Wells Fargo Bank branch, and A.J. Meyer’s former saddlery shop. It was most recently occupied by One Cut Above, a hair salon, but for years was the hardware store. It’s directly across Santa Fe from the Riverbank Historical Museum.

The remodel plans upgrades to the store facade and new signage in addition to the patient treatment areas being built. A covered staff break area outside on the adjacent paved area is to be included
