A fire broke out overnight at MCMC’s Nichols Landing Building in
Hood River. The fire started in an adjacent business within the building
and spread to the MCMC offices. The fire was extinguished by Hood River
Fire & EMS.
“Most importantly, nobody was hurt and all patient files are secure,”
said Christina McManigal, chief ambulatory operations officer at MCMC.
“We are currently assessing the damage, but we do know that the
Nichols Landing building will remain closed for restoration. It is too
soon to know if the closure will last a few weeks or several months.”
All MCMC clinics and the hospital in The Dalles are open. MCMC’s
Hood River-based providers have been seeing patients in The Dalles throughout
the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so while the Nichols Landing
building is restored.
