Uptown Medical preparing for move

White Rock's Uptown Medical Clinic is getting ready to move this fall to a larger location in South Surrey.

Uptown Medical Clinic is moving.

But officials with the White Rock practice say the pending relocation of the facility is “not at all” a loss of care in the community.

In fact, Dr. Rajeev Mangat says the change coming this fall – to a site in South Surrey’s Alder Crossing, in the 3200-block of King George Boulevard – means patients will benefit from more doctors, bigger space and better parking.

“We don’t want to leave patients high-and-dry,” Mangat told Peace Arch News. “We are going to be expanding to having four doctors available.”

Mangat expects the current site, located at 1545 Johnston Rd., to close in time for a Nov. 1 opening in South Surrey.

He noted there was some confusion earlier this year regarding the office’s future, following news that Peninsula Medical Clinic would be closing. The walk-in, which closed March 31, was located in the same building as Uptown Medical Clinic.

“Back then, people thought we were leaving, too,” Mangat said.

He is hopeful the new site will also be able to offer weekend care.
