Before the end of fall, the medical complex at Ward Avenue and Highway 33 will have several new offices and expanded medical care, including a doctor’s office offering urgent care.
The center’s owner, Manny Grewal, purchased the buildings at 1108 Ward Ave. in April 2012 from John Ramos and has been working this past year to fill all the offices.
“It’s good for the community to have everything centralized,” Grewal said.
Grewal’s wife, Dr. Jas Grewal, opened Smile Shine Dental in the complex in 2006 and has plans to expand her business in Building B, Ste. 10. The expansion will allow Grewal to offer full-service orthodontics, implant dentistry and general dentistry.
Neighboring business N Vision eye care will remain in Building B, Ste. 7.
The medical center’s Building C will house Apricot Urgent Care, run by Dr. Ali Wahid, which will have one doctor on duty until 11 p.m. each day once the office opens. Later on, hours will be expanded as needed.
Wahid’s medical office is in Building A, Ste. 1, next door to the obstetrics-gynecology office of Daniel McCauley, which opened in summer 2012.
The tenants of Building D include Quest Diagnostics, a lab testing company, as well as Delta Tutoring Service and Marilyn Paul Physical Therapy.
Delta Tutoring Service is a national company that specializes in tutoring children.
Marilyn Paul, a local resident, has been in business in Patterson for more than 30 years and will move in July 1.
Grewal wants to build two more buildings at Ward Avenue and Highway 33 in the early fall. He has a letter of intent from an unnamed imaging company that plans to move into yet-to-be-constructed Buildings E and F across the parking lot from the existing building. For now, the lot will be used for overflow parking for the medical building clients.
While Westside Medical Professional Center has kept busy in recent months, it is not the only medical complex in town attracting new businesses.
Keystone Pacific Business Park operators also aim to add more medical services to the business park in west Patterson, according to Keith Schneider, executive vice president of North Carolina-based parent company Keystone Corp.
In February, Schneider and Keystone announced that Modesto Kidney Group would open a dialysis treatment center in the business park in a year. Dialysis treatment is needed by people with chronic kidney disease. The 8,913-square-foot building at 1700-A Keystone Pacific Parkway would help West Siders who need that service.
Del Puerto Health Center, which is run by the Del Puerto Health Care District, moved into the business park in March 2012. Dr. Jeremy West opened West Orthodontics next door in fall 2012 in Ste. C1 and most recently welcomed an oral surgeon to his office. Golden Bear Physical Therapy, which also has offices in Modesto, Turlock and Oakdale, also opened in the business park last year.
Though Schneider is happy to see more medical offices move into the Keystone Park, he said the addition of medical services at the Westside Medical Professional Medical Center on Ward and Highway 33 is also a plus for residents.
“It’s good for Patterson and the Patterson area,” Schneider said.
Other recent medical office projects include the April 10 opening of Emanuel Family Practice at 1010 W. Las Palmas Ave., Ste. E. Shelle Glover, physician with Emanuel Family Practice, sees patients from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
In addition, Golden Valley Health Center, Highway 33 and C Street, added a 6,000-square-foot expansion in 2012. Golden Valley Health Center has been in Patterson for more than 30 years.
