The Herrink family built the Gateway Urgent Care building specifically to house an urgent care and medical offices. It was built to the specifications of the tenant, King George Medical Center, Ltd.
We learned last week that the urgent care would be closing on Oct. 18 when the company notified the King George Board of Supervisors in a letter.
We were aware that Dantra Healthcare, Inc. intended to file for bankruptcy and had already started, before the bankruptcy filing, the process of trying to find another urgent care operation to take over the facility, after notifying the bank which holds the loan.
Since the bankruptcy filing and the news that the current tenant will be closing at the end of this week, the search process has taken on a new urgency.
Despite the death of Ruth Herrink, who was instrumental in constructing the building, the Herrink family has been in discussions with companies interested in stepping in to continue to provide urgent care in King George and the surrounding area.
