REDDING, Calif. -  Dignity Health wants to build a wellness center across the street from a busy shopping area.

The center which would be located at the corner of Hartnell and Cypress Avenues is also near a popular homeless campsite.

"It'll take care of the homeless problems behind here that we've had for years," says Brandon Martin, who owns a salon in the nearby shopping area.

Action News Now spoke to other local business owners who say the addition will benefit the City of Redding.

"I'd say we're all very excited," says Martin. "There's been some beautiful mock-ups as fas as what we've seen from the build."

Another business owner, Patty Heinz said there's no downside to this plan.

"It's going to bring businesses and jobs," says Heinz. "One thing that’s going to be great is going to be all the jobs it’s going to add to Redding you know, in the medical industry, and I think that’s good for the community. It will help revitalize this shopping center."

Dignity Health officials say the center would house medical services and clinics in three buildings, totaling 129,600 square feet. The center would add about 180 jobs to the city.

Dignity Health said they will continue to move forward with the project, even though the project has been in the works for nearly four years.

Heinz says she looks forward to the project.

"I'm anxious to have it come, it's been delayed and it will help with the homeless problem in the back," says Heinz.

Dignity Health also owns Mercy Medical in Redding and St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff.
