GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Providence is expanding services to Josephine County for the first time. Patients will no longer have to commute to Medford to see a cardiologist. This May, a new cardiology clinic will open in Grants Pass on Northwest Hawthorne Street.
Basic services for heart health will be offered, and some patients may still need to have tests done in Medford.
The clinic will be open one day a week at first, and will offer appointments with all of Providence’s cardiology team.
Providence cardiologist Dr. Manish Mehta said he regularly sees patients from Grants Pass and the new office could allow patients to get in much sooner.
“So we feel, why not go to Grants Pass and provide that service so that it would reduce the wait time, the patients would prefer it and hopefully we can help the community there,” said Dr. Mehta.
The hours and open date of the new clinic are expected to be announced later this month.
