Kaiser Permanente Northwest to Open New Battle Ground Medical Office in Spring 2016 February 4, 2016

PORTLAND, Ore. — Battle Ground residents will soon have the option of seeing a Kaiser Permanente physician closer to home. Kaiser Permanente is opening a Battle Ground neighborhood medical office at 720 W. Main Street this spring. 

The neighborhood office will house four primary care physicians who will see patients of all ages, either in person or via virtual visit. The new facility will be equipped to offer video consultations that can be scheduled with physicians or specialists located at other Kaiser Permanente facilities. It will also feature on-site lab services and a separate room for minor medical procedures. 

“We recognized a need to increase our physical footprint in order to keep pace with our growing membership in Clark County,” said Martina Fetter, senior administrator in charge of Kaiser Permanente’s Southwest Washington ambulatory care operations. “We look forward to joining the Battle Ground community and providing our members there the option of seeing doctors right in their neighborhood.” 

The new office will provide even greater choice and convenience for Clark County residents, whose other Kaiser Permanente clinic options currently include the Cascade Park medical and dental offices, Orchards Medical Office, Salmon Creek medical and dental offices and Mill Plain One Medical Office. 

The 7,000-square-foot facility will be in a leased building formerly used as medical offices by PeaceHealth. It will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

This is the second new office opening for Kaiser Permanente in 2016, following on the heels of its Eugene medical and dental office openings in January.
