CLEAR FORK VALLEY — The site where the new Avita Health Care building will be has been leveled in preparation for construction.
A representative of the United Sates Department of Agriculture, which is funding the project, visited several Avita sites in Ohio Wednesday.
Anne Hazlett, Assistant to the Secretary of the USDA in rural development, visited an Avita hospital in Ontario Wednesday and was to have visited the site outside Bellville, but her schedule conflicted with making a trip to this area.
Ground was broken at the Avita site last week. The Avita building will be on State Route 97 at the intersection of I-71.
Workers for Studer Obringer, contractors, are at the site. Pieces of earth moving equipment and a construction trailer are there. Studer Obringer is from New Washington.
