Ramtech has recently completed a modular health clinic for Cactus Health Services, a Federally Qualified Health Center located in Fort Stockton, Texas. Working with Vandergriff Group Architects, PC in a design assist role in developing the Type V-b modular structure, Ramtech utilized the company’s pier and beam permanent modular construction process to accelerate the completion of the 6,016 square foot modular clinic building. Ramtech’s scope of work included the manufacturing, installation, and finish-out of the modular sections which were set on a concrete pier foundation that was procured separately by Cactus Health. The parapet wall exterior of the building utilizes a combination of R-Panel metal siding with a masonry rock veneer, while the interior is finished with vinyl covered gypsum walls along with commercial sheet vinyl flooring throughout the facility. The building provides three exam rooms for each of the clinics three providers, a reception area, multiple private offices, an x-ray room, lab and pharmacy area, and future space for a dentist.
Founded in 2003, Cactus Health Services began operations in Fort Stockton in 2004 in a small 1,200 square foot facility that had no room for expansion. The new location and facility will provide the ability for Cactus Health to expand their patient load while offering additional services. The medical facility will continue to serve as a community health clinic under its designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center. As an FQHC, the clinic provides comprehensive primary care and preventative care including health, oral, and mental health and substance abuse services to persons of all ages regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. The modular clinic project was funded using a long-term low interest loan through the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Community Facilities Direct Loan & Grant Program.
