The public is invited to the groundbreaking of a new medical facility in the city of Oelwein.

Community leaders, past and present, will participate in today's ceremony, to break ground at the site along Highway 150 on the south side of Oelwein. The facility is the work of the Oelwein Community Healthcare Foundation.

The event will take place at 3pm today.

Due to a lack of parking, a shuttle van will be available to pick up participants, starting at 2:30pm in the parking lot of 120 East Charles, the location of Saur and Saur Attorneys.

The van will also transport participants after the groundbreaking, back to the parking lot.
