Kirk Solieau, Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Chief Operations Officer has announced a new rural health clinic is coming to the Robeline area soon that will provide approximately 40 jobs in Robeline. Solieau said proposed zoning ordinance changes are in progress that would make way for the purchase of property and eventual construction of an EMS substation, rural health specialty clinic and a small pharmacy.
Solieau said after the zoning changes are made closure would take place on a new three-acre site to begin construction of the new facility.
“Approximately 30 percent of the hospital business comes from neighboring Sabine Parish”‘ Solieau said. This new clinic would serve the farthest western part of the parish, he added.
Solieau is in hopes that this project will be funded mostly by an economic development grant.
