Ketchikan, Alaska - The Ketchikan Medical Clinic and Wilson Medical Clinic physicians and staff are joining forces. It was announced recently at the monthly medical staff meeting that Ketchikan Medical Clinic will move from its current location at 1101 Copper Ridge Lane into the Wilson Medical Clinic at 212 Carlanna Lake Road by June 1, 2007.

The new clinic will be known as the PeaceHealth Primary Care.

Drs. Andy Pankow and Diane Liljegren, Family Medicine physicians, as well as Drs. Madeline Borhani, Herb Higgins and Peter Rice, Internal Medicine physicians, will now be seeing their patients under one roof. While the physicians and staff will continue to provide the exceptional care that their patients have come to expect it is anticipated that the merge will allow for an even better patient experience as the staff are able to work more efficiently and provide backup and support to each other to better meet patient need. Ketchikan Medical Clinic patients will now share the close proximity to other services (lab, x-ray, physical and occupational therapy, etc.)

Work is underway to make the physical merge possible. The Diabetes Education office is being relocated to an office on the second floor of the hospital -- two doors down from the new OB/GYN clinic. A few minor changes are being made to the Wilson Clinic itself to accommodate the new complement of physicians and staff.
