In early May, construction work began going vertical for the upcoming health center, located at 1620 Virginia St., McKinney, according to Valerie Lengel, the marketing consultant for the Family Health Center at Virginia Parkway.
“We are very excited for this next phase of construction for the new facility,” she said in an email.

The health center has been operating from 120 S. Central Expressway, McKinney, during the coronavirus pandemic, Lengel said.
The center continues to provide include medical, behavioral health, and women’s health services. It is using telemedicine as a primary method of serving patients, she said, but in-office appointments can still be scheduled.
