The Marin Healthcare District has opened a $2.2 million health care hub in Novato. Patients at the 10,000-square-foot medical office at 75 Rowland Way can receive primary care, behavioral health services, surgeries and more.
“We’ve created a multi-specialty hub of medicine,” said Joel Sklar, chief medical officer for Marin General Hospital, which is overseen by Marin Healthcare District. Primary care providers and a rotating roster of specialists provide services at the medical office, just a stone’s throw from Novato Community Hospital. Six Marin Healthcare District physicians offer check-ups and other general services, with specialists in endocrinology, rheumatology, urology, urologic oncology and behavioral health care. The center also allows for general and vascular surgeries and houses a clinical laboratory and ultrasound equipment.
“I think just from the physician standpoint, it makes coordination of care easier,” said Dr. Irene Teper, an internist stationed at the hub. “It’s much more convenient for patients.”
