Thanks to assistance from a $1 million Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation grant, the United Community Health Center recently celebrated the grand opening of its new healthcare building in Green Valley, Arizona. Residents near the Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold’s Sierrita mine can receive medical and dental care at the new facility.

The 16,246 square-foot, energy-efficient space is named the Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Building. It houses dental care for children, primary-care clinical space and business functions.

The United Community Health Center’s mission is to provide comprehensive quality health care to individuals and families of all ages living in Southern Arizona and to give special consideration to those who, because of geographic, economic, developmental, ethnic, age or other factors, may not have adequate access to health care.
