The Wallowa Valley Health Care District has begun construction on two exciting projects in the name of facility advancement.
Expansion of the Medical Office Building at 601 Medical Park Way was approved by the District Board in April and local construction company, Wellens Farwell began mobilizing on April 24. With the District’s mission to continually provide premier care, the need for more space became increasingly necessary. The expansion will provide additional exam rooms and office space allowing for improved privacy and patient care. When the medical office building was originally constructed it was planned and built in a way that would allow for easy expansion when the need arose. The expansion is slated for completion by late October, 2019.
Additional construction on a covered walkway between the Medical Office Building and Wallowa Memorial Hospital is also underway. This walkway is being assembled by the Plant Services Department of WMH and paid for by a generous donation from the Kirk and Mary Hayes Estate. The walkway will serve as a safe portal between the two buildings regardless of the season.
“Our mission is to provide premier health care,” said Plant Services Director, Dan McCarthy. “These projects will help us do just that.”
The medical campus in Enterprise includes Wallowa Memorial Hospital; Parkway Health & Wellness Center, housing Mountain View Medical Group, the Physical Therapy/ Occupational Therapy Clinic, Winding Waters Clinic; and Wallowa Valley Senior Living.
