MCMC Urgent Care: Water's Edge Reconstruction to Begin August 12

Construction is scheduled to begin August 12 on the Water’s Edge reconstruction project, which will benefit all Gorge residents by providing additional access to medical care at our new urgent care, an enhanced pediatric therapy center and redesigned fitness center.

“We are excited that the Water's Edge renovations that are underway will provide the much-requested Urgent Care Center for anyone in our community requiring those services. Keep in mind we currently offer same day appointments at MCMC Family Medicine, MCMC Pediatrics and MCMC Internal Medicine for our existing patients,” said Dennis Knox, MCMC President and CEO.

Water’s Edge will remain open for all services during construction. Construction will be staged to avoid impacting therapy patients. By the time the urgent care build out begins, physical therapy will have moved into its new home on the east end of the Fitness Center. The former Bistro space will be transformed into new cardiac and pulmonary rehab suites allowing further integration of all rehabilitation programs on the first floor, with nutrition services moving to the 3rd floor.

To improve the Water’s Edge experience for members, approximately 25% of the current fitness center will be converted into therapy space, which will be available to gym members during non-therapy hours. The underutilized east section of the fitness center will also be converted to an open floor plan that will be available to members and group classes in the early mornings, evenings and weekends for a variety of uses.

Water’s Edge will not permanently lose any parking spots. Parking spaces in the west side lot nearest the fitness center will be closed during the initial phase of construction. As the project moves forward, the east side gravel lot will be closed to accommodate construction equipment.
