Mid-Columbia residents seeking relief from chronic back, neck, arthritic, cancer or other chronic or acute pain have more options available to them with Lynx Healthcare’s recent Kennewick expansion.
Formerly Pinnacle Pain Center in Kennewick, the Tri-City pain clinic rebranded with a series of other clinics as part of Lynx Healthcare.
“We wanted to kind of centralize our brand, so we just switched everything to Lynx Healthcare. … You’re able to get the multidisciplinary approach within one group,” said Isaac Butts, director of physician relations and referral coordinator for Lynx Healthcare.
The health care parent company completed its latest renovation at 741 W. Hood Place in Kennewick and on the sixth floor of the Trios Care Center at Southridge about five months ago.
It also opened a new administrative center in the Benton-Franklin Title Company building at 3315 W. Clearwater Ave. in Kennewick.
The series of renovations at Lynx Healthcare clinics in Kennewick and Walla Walla cost about $185,000. The company saved roughly $80,000 on remodeling costs through tenant improvement incentives, since it leases out each of its properties.
Some work was contracted while staff at the clinics helped with other parts of the remodel.
“A lot of the stuff we did ourselves, which is crazy when you honestly think about it,” Butts said. “It definitely helps with savings.”
The projects include the 7,500-square-foot Hood Place clinic, formerly Pinnacle Pain Center; the 7,500-square-foot administration center on Clearwater Avenue; a 7,500-square-foot clinic on the sixth floor of the Trios Care Center at Southridge; and the 4,000-square-foot Walla Walla clinic.
