Umpqua Health building new medical office building in Roseburg
ROSEBURG, Ore. - Umpqua Health kicked off construction Friday for its new medical office building in Roseburg on Newton Creek and NE Stephens.
It will house 12 doctors to start.
The idea is to expand health services in the community, including physical, behavioral and dental care.
Umpqua Health serves 26,000 people in Douglas County, which is a quarter of the population.
"It'll meet our current goals and it will also meet our long term goals to expand and grow to serve the residents of Douglas County," Sue Goldberg with Umpqua Health said.
She hopes it will attract more doctors to the area as well.
They say the site could eventually have an urgent care and imaging lab.
It's set to open late next year.
