A new healthcare facility will soon serve Chicago's Austin community and the environment. Ground was broken Monday for the Austin Family Health Center.

Project leaders say the new center will be able to handle more than twice as many patients as the current center with more services that include a dental clinic.

As a bonus, the building is expected to exceed requirements for certification from the U.S. Green Buildings Council.

The facility is scheduled to be completed next year.
