Mattawa hopes having a medical clinic in its new hospital helps retain and attract new doctors. The new clinic, located on the lower level of the new Mattawa Hospital, had its grand opening this week. It’s a turnkey operation where the hospital owns the facility and doctors only have to worry about their staff. The hospital pays for everything else. The new medical clinic in Mattawa has four doctors in place but there’s space for five. And having the clinic right in the hospital means doctors can see their patients in the hospital without having to drive from their former offices. Over the long term the plan is also to relocate the Algonquin Nursing Home to the hospital.
