The brand new $23 million, 37,000 square-foot Sutter Gould Turlock Care Center is set to open to the public beginning Aug. 18, 7 a.m.
During a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday evening, Sutter Gould Medical Foundation CEO Paul DeChant said the building was designed for the future of medicine and will be able to facilitate technological advances in healthcare.
“I’m looking forward to wonderful things happening at this facility,” he said.
The new building will replace Turlock’s existing Sutter Gould office, located at 1015 E. Main St, which had been in use since 1950 a time when medical care was very different than it is today.
The new care center, located at 3100 W. Christoffersen Parkway, will provide urgent care, internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, specialty care, radiology and a small laboratory. In the next few months OBGYN services will likely also be offered.
One of the highlights of the new facility will be more physician specialists in Turlock, saving patients a drive to Modesto.
“This beautiful building was the result of teamwork and planning,” said Sutter Health President David Benn, who went on to explain that physician’s input was included in the design of the building.
“We hope to continue to grow and increase the number of care specialties offered in Turlock,” said Benn.
The Turlock Care Center will employ about 30 physicians and could expand in the future, as Sutter Health owns an additional two acres on the site.
