A two-story medical office building under construction in north Roseburg is on track to open late this year.

The 24,700-square-foot structure is being built by Harmon Construction of Coos Bay for Umpqua Health (formerly Architrave Health). The building sits on property just north of the intersection of Northeast Stephens Street and Newton Creek Road.

The company plans to have 15 providers when the center opens, offering care in pediatrics, primary care and behavioral health. Umpqua Health officials say they are already getting the providers lined up for when the facility opens.

“Recruitment is going well, and we have already identified providers who work in the new clinic,” said Mark Tsuchiya, director of marketing and communications for Umpqua Health.

Construction costs for Umpqua Health Newton Creek are estimated between $9 million and $10 million. The facility is designed to serve residents of Roseburg and greater Douglas County and long-term plans could include an urgent care, imaging, lab and a pharmacy.

Tsuchiya says their new medical office building is a reinvestment in the community that ensures Douglas County residents have access to high-quality care and exceptional patient experience.

During remarks at the groundbreaking in June, Umpqua Health CEO Brent Eichman said the clinic is the delivery of a promise Umpqua Health made to the community last year, when it shared plans to expand access to care in Douglas County.

Umpqua Health has two clinics in the Harvard Medical Park — Umpqua Health Harvard and Umpqua Health New Clinic. Umpqua Health Harvard will remain open at the same location, even after the opening of the new building on Northeast Stephens.

Umpqua Health New Clinic, at its current location on Harvard Avenue, will relocate to the new building once construction is complete. At that point, plans call for the clinic to assume the new name of Umpqua Health Newton Creek.
