Looking to a growth-filled future, the Southern Coos Health District Board has authorized staff to begin the permitting process that will lead to a new Outpatient Specialty Clinic on the hospital campus.

The new manufactured building will provide more than double the space of the existing rented quarters of the Outpatient Specialty Clinic, and will allow for housing at least two additional doctors.

The new clinic will be designed to house Southern Coos Hospital’s surgeon, Dr. Henry Montana; podiatrist, Dr. John DiMaggio and two primary care physicians.  It will also provide expanded space for the nursing staff and support personnel who provide wound and ostomy care, diabetes education and foot care, IV therapy, the Coumadin clinic and more.

The goal is to complete the building this summer. It will be located on the June Avenue side of the hospital campus.
