Albany - A new state of the art medical facility is ready for operation at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany.

The new facility has more than 1.7 million dollars worth of new equipment and furniture, including a prescription system that automatically counts and dispenses medications. The facility also has a digital radiology center that will allow workers to see results immediately.

Health Care Administrator Gina Trotter says, "It's an opportunity of a lifetime for a health care administrator in the Navy to open up a brand new 6.5 million dollar facility. It's going to do a lot to increase the staff morale and comradery as well as the patients in the community. We're very excited about this opportunity."

The medical center will open on Monday and will serve more than 600 people.
