Vancouver Clinic today announced plans to build a new clinic off Highway 14, just west of Camas.
“As we complete construction on our Ridgefield clinic, it’s time for us to look east as Clark County continues to grow,” Mark Mantei, Vancouver Clinic’s chief executive officer, stated in a press release. “We have served the Clark County community for over 80 years and we want to continue expanding our locations to provide the very best care close to where people live and work.”
The new clinic will join seven other Vancouver Clinic locations in Clark County, including one in Washougal and a new clinic opening Aug. 5 in Ridgefield. The location will be on 4.41 acres Vancouver Clinic recently purchased in the Columbia Palisades, located in east Vancouver near the Camas-Vancouver border.
“This new Columbia Palisades location has easy access to (Highway 14) and will allow us to expand access to primary care and add a new vision center,” Dr. Alfred Seekamp, Vancouver Clinic’s chief medical officer stated in the press release. “We have a thriving vision center in Salmon Creek and our other locations simply do not have the room for expansion.”
Vancouver Clinic expects to break ground on the east Vancouver clinic later this year and open the site in 2021. According to the press release, the first phase will be two stories and include 26,400 square feet for urgent care, family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, ophthalmology, laboratory and imaging services. The second phase could add another 30,000 square feet of clinical space in the future.
