St. Helena Hospital Clearlake has opened the new Kelseyville Family Health Center and hired Saska Sookra, MD, family medicine specialist, as the new full-time physician.
The community is invited to an open house on Sunday, April 19, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. to meet Dr. Sookra and tour the new building.
Located at 5290 State St., the $1 million center replaces the Kelsey Creek Clinic and offers family medicine, podiatry, diabetic education and behavioral health services in a 2,900-square-foot building with seven patient exams rooms, a new patient education and consultation room and easier street access with additional parking spaces.
Dr. Sookra is trained in both adult and pediatric medicine and is board certified with the American Academy of Family Practice. Her medical degree is from Loma Linda University School of Medicine. She completed her family practice residency at Florida Hospital, the largest hospital in the nation, and was named Family Medicine Resident Teacher of the Year.
“Our new building and the arrival of Dr. Sookra are visible symbols of St. Helena Hospital Clearlake’s commitment and investment to make sure Lake County residents have access to superior medical care,” said Linda Gibson, the hospital’s senior vice president of operations.
Kelseyville is one of three community health clinics operated by the hospital in Lake County.
