Utica Park Clinic - Jenks Celebrates Grand Opening at Village on Main
Jenks, Okla. – Utica Park Clinic – Jenks, along with officials of the Village on Main, announced today that it will celebrate its grand opening ceremony on Tuesday, June 8, 2010, from 4 pm to 6 pm at the Village on Main, 701 East Main Street in Jenks. Tours will begin at 4 pm and the ribbon cutting will take place at 5 pm.
The new 22,000 square-foot Utica Park Clinic – Jenks medical facility will be the first business to celebrate its grand opening as an occupant of the Village on Main, an estimated $60+ million, 420,000-square-foot retail, office, residential and hotel development project. Of note is the project’s design, which will be beneficial to surrounding commercial districts, as well as the entire metro area.
“Utica Park Clinic – Jenks is very excited to celebrate our grand opening in a new facility as the first business to occupy the Village on Main,” said Dan Ramsey, Chief Executive Officer, Utica Park Clinic. “Utica Park Clinic – Jenks has been providing exceptional care to the residents of Jenks and surrounding communities since 1992. Our new, expanded facility offers convenience and amenities for our patients, while allowing the physicians and staff to provide additional comprehensive services right here in the Jenks community.”
The Village on Main will be constructed during the next two years and will include a 1,600 foot road that will fork off Main Street to the southeast. The road may be closed at certain times to accommodate concerts, festivals and other events.
"We are pleased to see the inaugural project of Village on Main come to fruition,” said Duane Phillips, owner of Village on Main. “Congratulations to Utica Park Clinic – Jenks and the citizens of Jenks and South Tulsa who will undoubtedly enjoy this new, state of the art medical facility."
Utica Park Clinic – Jenks has been an established practice in Jenks since 1992. The practice, as well as the physicians associated with it, has relocated to their new facility at the Village on Main. The new UPC – Jenks facility offers amenities such as increased and more convenient parking; an expanded, upscale clinical setting that doesn’t resemble a medical office building; a children’s play area; a well-child waiting area; x-ray; laboratory; and six physician offices initially with room to expand to 12 offices on the second floor.
