“Ridgeview wanted to bring a breadth of services to the community that can meet the needs of the entire family,” said Michael Phelps, chief administrative officer, Ridgeview Medical Center, of the Ridgeview Delano Clinic expansion. In 2011, Ridgeview broke ground for the clinic’s physical expansion and began adding to its medical staff, with the addition of an internist, Prasanna, MD; family medicine providers Gretchen Soberay, DO, and Patricia Sorensen, MD, joined the team this year.

The physical renovation of the space, more than doubled Ridgeview Delano Clinic’s space. The 11,000-square-foot expansion extended the 8,379-square-foot clinic that was built in 2002. The addition provides expanded clinic space, additional rehabilitation space for Ridgeview Rehab Specialties, and space for Ridgeview’s partners.

Rounding out the offerings at Delano Clinic will be pediatric services through Wayzata Children’s Clinic, under the medical direction of pediatrician Kelly Lemieux, MD, and orthopaedic services through Twin Cities Orthopedics, with orthopaedic care provided by Jeffrey Mair, DO.
