Manchin Clinic South a ‘family practice’

WHITE HALL — The goal of the Manchin Clinic South, which opened last week in White Hall, is “to be helpful as a family practice.”

Dr. John Manchin II established the Manchin Clinic in Farmington on Aug. 6, 1979. The facility started as a doctor’s office that measured about 3,000 square feet and was expanded over the years. Today, the clinic is four stories and has about 60,000 square feet of space.

“We’ve been very fortunate to continue to grow in the Farmington area,” Manchin said.

Manchin said he and his family had always thought about establishing a presence in the southern part of Marion County. They finally got the opportunity when a piece of land went up for sale behind the Middletown Mall. They decided to purchase the property and put a second Manchin Clinic there.

July 7 was the first day of business for the Manchin Clinic South. Petrucci Brothers Contracting in Farmington started construction on the 10,000-square-foot facility in June 2007.

“Manchin Clinic South is almost a mere image of the Manchin Clinic in Farmington,” Manchin said.

The new facility has a pharmacy and laboratory and does X-rays, ultrasounds and CT scans. Like the Farmington facility, the Manchin Clinic South tries to keep most of its services in-house so people don’t have to travel to other places.

Manchin said the practice focuses on providing timely service for patients.

“I understand how important it is to get people in and try to see them on a timely basis,” he said. “We want to get you right in to see a doctor or a physician assistant.”

While crowded parking has always been an issue at the Manchin Clinic in Farmington, the new building in White Hall has ample room for vehicles, he said. Also, the Manchin Clinic South is a one-level facility, which provides easier access for handicapped persons
