To all interested parties and persons:

Notice is hereby given that a draft Environmental Assessment for the Long Term Care/Skilled Nursing Facility is available for review. The San Carlos Apache Healthcare Corporation (SCAHC) plans to construct a 117,000 square foot Long Term Care/Skilled Nursing Facility (Project) to be located near the hospital in Peridot, AZ. The turn-off road for this Project will eventually be located along U.S. Highway 70 near milepost 274.

An Environmental Assessment is required to comply with the requirements of entering a lease with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and in preparation for constructing the Project.
