Tillamook Hospital to Open Specialty & Urgent Care Clinic in Manzanita

General

To help meet health care needs and community requests for specialty services in North Tillamook County, Tillamook County General Hospital is pleased to announce a new service, Tillamook Medical Group/Manzanita Primary & Specialty Care. With an anticipated opening in early January 2012, the Manzanita urgent care clinic will enhance health care services available in the area by providing specialty services in addition to urgent and primary care.

Extending the Adventist Health mission of patient-centered care that provides physical, mental and spiritual healing, specialty and urgent care will be key areas of focus of the new clinic. Specialty physician and provider services at this location will include Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, Podiatry and Internal Medicine. Urgent care will be available for extended hours during the week and on weekends. Additional services will be added as identified and requested by the community. 

Urgent care services will bring diagnostic imaging, laboratory and urgent medical evaluation to residents and visitors year around, with extended hours during the busy summer tourism months.

The facility will also provide Tillamook Ambulance with a permanent location closer to the center of the area’s emergency medical call volume. The new accommodations for the ambulance crews, who serve in 24-hour shifts, will better support their work with such things as an additional sleeping room and improved computer connectivity with the Hospital.

“We are very excited to be opening this new clinic,” stated Hospital CEO Larry Davy. “We have received many requests for these additional services from the local residents. We are committed to continuing to work in close partnership with Manzanita area community residents and their leaders to meet the needs for expanded access to a wider array of health care services.”
