Park City Clinic to build at Quinn’s Junction
November 17, 2009
this time next year, you may have a new option to fill prescriptions: a Park City Clinic location at Quinn’s Junction.
An entity called Physicians Holdings, a subset of the partnership that makes up the Park City Clinic on Bonanza Drive, is applying for permission to build a 25,000-square-foot building near the new Park City Medical Center, Center of Excellence and the almost-completed Summit County Health Department/Peoples Health Clinic.
If approved, the structure located on 3.4 acres would be about the same size as the latter.
"We’re beyond capacity at our current building, especially in winter time," explained Dr. Bill Pidwell with the Park City Clinic.
He added that the new building will satisfy other goals as well. With several of the Park City Clinic physicians also working for Intermountain Healthcare’s new hospital, it is desirable for them to have offices closer than Bonanza Drive.
The clinic also sees many patients from the East Side of Summit County as well as Wasatch County. The new building will cut their travel time by five or 10 minutes, sometimes more.

The new clinic, slated to be open by Dec. 1 2010, will have 15 exam areas and a pharmacy. A substantial portion of the building will be leased to IHC for use by health-care providers supporting the hospital. That space will also allow the Park City Clinic to expand further in the future if needed without additional bricks and mortar, Pidwell said.
Another tenant will be a group offering counseling services to help with various addictions.
Currently the plan is for the new facility to offer more of the family-medicine services provided by the Park City Clinic, with the old building emphasizing urgent care to people in the city. That could change, however, depending on patient needs, he said.
The proposal hit a snag at Wednesday’s planning commission meeting because the city wanted to see smaller parking lots and better hiding of the lots.
"We can fully investigate the parking issue like they’ve asked for and have an acceptable solution for them," he said.
The working title for the project is the Physician Holdings Medical Office Buildings.
