RIDGEFIELD — The Vancouver Clinic (TVC), Clark County’s largest multi-specialty medical group, finalized the purchase of land on Nov. 2 just west of Exit 14 off Interstate 5, located on the Pioneer Street first roundabout in Ridgefield.
“The Vancouver Clinic has provided care in southwest Washington for 80 years,” said Mark Mantei, CEO of The Vancouver Clinic. “As Clark County grows, we want to continue expanding locations to provide the best best care close to where people live and work.”
“Ridgefield represents a location that will allow us to meet the primary health needs of north Clark County residents, as well as provide continuity of care access to all the specialty care TVC offers at nearby locations,” said Dr. Alfred Seekamp, chief medical officer. “It’s really exciting to expand services into Ridgefield and provide the best, most comprehensive health care for people of all ages and stages of life.”
The $6.7 million project is expected to open in 2018. Initial construction is anticipated to accommodate 10,000 square feet of finished clinical space with eight primary care providers and 16 staff members. The construction design has room to expand up to 30,000 square feet.
“The city of Ridgefield is looking forward to welcoming The Vancouver Clinic,” said Mayor Ron Onslow. “Expanded health care services are needed for our growing community.”
The city of Ridgefield has been one of the fastest growing cities in Washington state in recent years. The Vancouver Clinic is looking forward to growing with Ridgefield and serving the medical needs of the community.
