CHIPLEY — Community leaders, hospital administrators and personnel, and local elected officials were all on hand Tuesday for the grand-opening of the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Specialty Center.

“This Specialty Center is a dream come true for us,” said CEO and President Pat Schlenker. Planning for the building, which houses doctor’s offices, a 2,000-square-foot education center, and other programs, began back in 2007. Schlenker said. But it became  a dream deferred when the economy started tanking in 2008.

The hospital added some modular units, “but by 2010 we were needing more quality office space so we began looking at building the center again,” Schlenker said.

The Specialty Center houses three physician practices, an outpatient psych program, the education center and diabetes education, and cost about $1.7 million to build, Schlenker said.
