For more than a year, the local community has watched Humboldt General Hospital's new medical office building take shape.
Monday, July 11, residents will finally get to enter the more than 30,000 square feet of space that includes eight medical office suites and a central reception and scheduling area.
Crews continue to work on smaller expansions of some departments in the hospital including Radiology, Respiratory, the Business Office, Medical Records and Emergency.
Additionally, the medical office of Dr. Shouping Li will be transformed into the Information Technology Department, while the medical office building located at the corner of Haskell and Mizpah streets will host visiting physicians.
Those projects will be complete by October 2011.
Next week, however, the bulk of the new space will open as all HGH physicians, including Dr. Soon Kim, Dr. Shouping Li and Dr. Sharon McIntyre, begin seeing patients in their respective suites in the new building.
Three nurse practitioners also will open new family practice clinics. Sandra Deveny, APN-C, Lisa Jonkey, FNP, and LaDonna Reyka, FNP-C will treat patients ranging from infants to the elderly. The three providers also will help staff The Walk-In Clinic.
All other patients for Radiology, Laboratory, Respiratory, Cardiac Rehab and other departments should also access the building via the new entrances. Once inside, patients should check in at the central reception desk, located on the main floor.
Residents needing assistance from the Business Office or Medical Records will find personnel in temporary quarters in the new Sarah Winnemucca Conference Room. Please ask for directions from any member of the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary or at the central reception desk.
To reach the new clinics, patients should park in the hospital's main patient parking lot, which can be accessed from Mizpah or Harmony streets.
Patients may access the building through the main entrance facing the ambulance station or through the side entrance facing City Park.
The offices of Dr. Li (Suite A), Dr. Kim (Suite B) and The Walk-in Clinic (Suite C) are on the main floor of the building.
The offices of Lisa Jonkey, FNP (Suite E), LaDonna Reyka, FNP-C (Suite F), Sandra Deveny, APN-C (Suite G) and Dr. McIntyre (Suite H) are located on the second floor.
The building includes elevator and stairway access for both levels.
