Construction crews are busy at the site of a long-awaited senior health clinic that will be operated as part of Binghamton University's Health Sciences Campus.

Plans for the facility at Jennison and Corliss avenues were announced three years ago. The project is being developed in conjunction with Lourdes Hospital.

An old house and a former medical complex were demolished nearly three years ago to make way for the clinic. The property is located just northeast of the renovated Endicott Johnson building that now houses the Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
