Doyle Family Practice getting close to re-opening
Gold Run Construction Company is completing the demolition of the old structure as well as preparing the parking lot. Taylor Concrete is doing the concrete work and Bay Construction is completing the building. All new equipment has been ordered for the clinic and it is ready to be moved in as soon as the building is ready. Facilities Manager Jon Hershberger said he is looking forward to a targeted completion date in late August.
Prior to the fire, Mike Oborn, PA and Dr. Peter Wilcox were seeing an average of 50 patients a week, assisted by Patti Montgomery, LVN, and Tanya Carruth with Kathy Rutledge handling the front desk duties. In the meantime, patients from the Doyle and Herlong areas have been able to continue to see Oborn and Wilcox at Northeastern’s facility in Susanville and many have taken advantage of this opportunity.
For the convenience of the area residents, the Doyle Clinic telephone number has been forwarded so that it currently rings through to the Susanville facility. Lassen Rural Bus put additional service into operation and the Lassen Senior Center has helped transport those from the area that had no other means of transportation to and from Susanville. Everything has been done to make it as easy as possible for the patients while the construction is under way.
The staff at Northeastern Rural Health Clinic is eagerly looking forward to the re-opening of the Doyle Family Practice as part of their commitment to provide quality, comprehensive, preventive and accessible service.
