CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) — Officials at Camp Lejeune are scheduled to celebrate the opening of a new, $29 million center for wounded warriors and their families.

Marine Corps spokeswoman 2nd Lt. Sarah Burns says Friday’s ribbon cutting at the Warrior Hope and Care Center is set for 10 a.m.

The 37,000-square-foot center is to serve wounded, ill and injured Marines, sailors and their families.

The center has areas for medical and mental health case management as well as recovery care centers.

It will host a warrior athlete reconditioning program and include offices for Veterans Affairs representatives, Department of Labor representatives, education specialists, chaplain programs and family support specialists.
