NorthBay Healthcare will have five primary care sites, with approximately 27 physicians serving 40,000 patients by 2010, according to President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Passama.
The organization currently has primary care facilities in Vacaville and Green Valley and recently signed the lease on land for a third facility in Fairfield.
Passama confirmed that NorthBay already is busy working on plans for a fourth site in 2007, and will look into a fifth around 2008 or 2009, though he was unable to disclose specific details at this time.
Plans for the Fairfield site at Martin and Hilborn roads, however, were unveiled in April 2005.
'The central Fairfield site will be our third site opening up in 2006,' he said. 'We've signed the lease - it's moving forward.'
The 12,000-square-foot building should be ready toward the end of summer, according to Passama, and likely will host eight physicians, though it will begin with an internist, a pediatrician and a family practitioner.
NorthBay's exponential growth in primary care commenced with the opening of its Vacaville site in 2002. It began with one physician and by the end of the year, Passama said, 1,500 patients were being treated at the Nut Tree Road site.
After opening its primary care facility in Green Valley in late 2004, he explained, NorthBay was up to 13 physicians and 18,000 patients.
NorthBay is recruiting new primary care doctors, Passama said, though he noted that some of their projected numbers depend in part upon their success in recruitment.
So far, he said, 'We've been very successfu"
