A groundbreaking Tuesday will mark the one-year anniversary of the Moore tornado. The event will take place at the site of the old Moore Medical Center.

Fox and Fields Pediatric Clinic used to operate out of a corner of the second floor of Moore Medical Center.

Monday afternoon, several employees gathered and discussed how they all rushed to Moore Medical Center's chapel, when the tornado was bearing down.

"It sounded like I was in a paper shredder," office manager Cheri Lee said.

Fox and Fields re-opened an office a mile southeast of their old location about a month ago. Lee said they came back to Moore because there is a need.

"There's a group of people that don't really have a lot of doctors here, so I think it was very important to stay in Moore and to say the tornado didn't beat you," Lee said.

Fox and Fields will soon be changing it's name to Premiere Pediatrics. They are located in Moore's Oklahoma Business Center Building.
