New Temescal Valley Medical Facility Addresses Regional Doctor Shortage

A new Riverside Medical Clinic facility in Temescal Valley opened last week, providing resources to off-set region-wide medical shortages.

Administrators and doctors held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new facility on Thursday, Oct. 10.

The nearly 97,000-square-foot facility has a full range of specialty services to meet the needs of a rapidly-expanding population in Riverside County.

Dr. William Suh is a cardiologist at the new clinic. He says the new facility will help attract more physicians to an area that’s sorely lacking them.

Suh: “So this whole area is having a huge population growth, lot of new home construction, and people moving into the area. There was already a doctor shortage to begin with and now that doctor shortage has gotten worse. And so we are looking to be able to bring in more physicians into the area and to be able to provide quality medical care to this community.”

The new facility is located at 21634 Retreat Parkway in Temescal Valley.
