Foundation work is nearly complete for the $16 million University District Health Clinic, and Bouten Construction expects to start erecting structural steel next month.

The two-story, 42,000-square-foot clinic will be on the southeast edge of the Riverpoint Campus, directly south across the street from Schade Towers and east of The Bookie.

It is expected to open in mid-2016 at 624 E. Front Ave.

Brian Sayler, Bouten senior project manager, said preliminary site work started in May. The new building’s exterior will have brick and metal wall panels. The interior includes areas for 55 exam rooms, a gym for occupational and physical therapy services, behavioral health counseling, an X-ray imaging suite, and pharmacy.

The U-District clinic will be operated by a consortium of Providence, WSU Spokane and the Empire Health Foundation. It will provide a variety of health services and be a venue for medical residents to practice, along with nursing, pharmacy and other health sciences students from WSU and Eastern Washington University.

The residents and students will practice under the supervision of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other providers and serve many of the same patients now cared for at two residency clinics in the Fifth and Browne Medical Center. Those clinics will close and move to the new site.
