A health center at 8610 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Houston is debuting a new look on the holiday honoring the civil rights activist.

Central Care Community Health Center will hold a grand re-opening Monday morning. The facility recently completed a million-dollar renovation

Ladawnya Joshlin has been going to the clinic for years. She says the new environment is cleaner, more comfortable and more spiritual.

"The doctor would come out and pray for you before she gave you your test results, so that made me continue to keep spreading the word to the community that they don't only help you mentally; they help you physically, too," Joshlin said.

The clinic says it has doubled its patient capacity and added dental and mental health services.
